Effective partnership working involves organisations and sectors working together to provide the best possible support for communities across Inverclyde. As the third sector interface for Inverclyde, we are well placed to link third sector groups with public sector bodies such as Inverclyde Council and Health Social Care Partnership (HSCP).
To do this we have different networks that meet often: Resilience Network, Best Start in Life Network, Learning Disabilities Network and Wellbeing Network. Likewise, CVS Inverclyde represents the local third sector at many strategic groups, enabling these organisations to take an active role in the delivery of health and social care in Inverclyde.
Our partnership working means we can deliver services, projects, and funding for the benefit of the people of Inverclyde. This includes our work to challenge stigma, helping Inverclyde #KeepThePromise for care experienced young people, delivering a wellbeing campaign in the wake of Covid-19, administering funding for third sector organisations to create a network of warm spaces and much more.
