East Sussex VCSE Alliance Logo - Commissioning workshop news story

East Sussex VCSE Alliance members and statutory commissioners met in March 2022 to discuss how commissioning can work more effectively and collaboratively with the VCSE, using the example of tackling health inequality. 

Workshop objectives

  • Consider how the Council, NHS and VCSE can work together to address population health inequalities.
  • Develop a shared view of barriers and priorities for action.
  • Agree priorities for change and taking findings forward.

Key messages

  • A shared approach to leadership required, with agreed commissioning principles, acknowledging complexity of partnerships.
  • Sharing and developing skills through creating a ‘Commissioning Academy’?
  • VCSE expertise is underused – better understanding needed of achievements and pressures faced by both commissioners and VCSE leaders.
  • Plans for a second workshop later in 2022.

A second workshop is planned in November 2022. It plans to look at how to co-produce and co-design services.
