LCVS has welcomed a report from Volunteering Matters and The Local Government Association (LGA) highlighting where public health is successfully working with the voluntary sector across the country.

The report champions the need for supporting local voluntary sector infrastructure, stating it is “central to the relationship with public health” and contributes “massively to an extended role in service delivery.”

David Fannin, Lincolnshire CVS chief executive, said: “There is no doubt that the work of voluntary and community organisations is vital to NHS and Public Health plans for improving health, wellbeing and care across Lincolnshire, including social prescribing and integrated neighbourhood teams.  We hope that the plans will become reality sooner rather than later.”
