Hosted by Gloucestershire Counselling Services 

The workshop aims to enable us to think about suicide and increase our understanding of this complex subject while exploring the meaning behind this powerful act. It intends to help us to understand its individual nature.  It also examines the destructive aspects and the unconscious intentions and fantasy behind the act, both as an act for and against the self.

Let's come together as a sector and co-design an engagement model for how we work with the ICS.

The VCS Alliance is working with colleagues at NAVCA and NHS England to create a workshop looking at why and how the VCSE wants to work with newly formed Integrated Care System (ICS).

Therefore, we want to bring the sector together to have the conversation about coproducing an engagement strategic and to think about why and how the sector is represented at a systems level.

It is essential that the VCSE decides why and how it wants to engage with the ICS and that we set up the right structures and governance to do this effectively. The ICS will be taking strategic decisions that directly impact on health and care delivery and the VCSE having an input into its priorities and planning is integral to improving health inequalities of our communities. Getting this right from the start will set the tone for the future working relationship and providing the ICS with a coproduced, readymade model of the VCSE offer and engagement will send a message of unity and strength.
