Third sector organisations have been very successful in providing a range of health and social care services across the county. We have a rich mix of small and medium sized enterprises as well as branches of national concerns, delivering essential support to vulnerable adults, young people and children.
These organisations are often working under contract to the local authority or NHS and are subject to the rigorous procedures surrounding tendering and procurement.
The interest groups for organisations that work with older people (OPIG), children (CHIG) and young people (YIG), exist to provide a supportive focus for their activities. Issues of relevance regarding commissioning, contracts or marketing of services are discussed, with speakers invited to inform the audience. Where appropriate, hvoss will also represent members’ interests at strategic panels or at the commissioning stage.
Contact us for more information about the interest groups.
