Health and Wellbeing Network

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.

2021 Meetings

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.


July - Health infrastructure/ Linking into social prescribing

November - Reaching new audiences 

Sign up to the group and our health and care newsletter.
