Our Health and Wellbeing network gives you a voice in health and social care strategy development and ensures that you're informed about local health and social care policy.
We work with local charities, community groups, statutory organisations and government to influence how health and social care services are delivered by the voluntary sector in Kingston.
We meet three times a year giving local VCSE groups the opportunity to come together and discuss issues relating to health and social care in local communities. We usually cover a specific topic and then share news from your own organisation and offer you a chance to network and build partnerships.
