Voluntary Sector Health and Care - Strategic Partners Portal

Strategic Partnership Programme


The Health and Care Strategic Partnership Programme enables the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations to work in equal partnership with the Department of Health (DH), NHS England and Public Health England (PHE).

The programme invests in VCS organisations, working at a national level.  It allows each organisation to demonstrate leadership and innovation, to reflect the views of their members and networks and support the development of knowledge and capability in the sector to engage in the wider health and social care reform agenda.

The programme has developed from a partnership of 11 organisations establishing a robust model for working in partnership, to 22 organisations spanning the breadth and depth of the VCS.  It is estimated that through these Strategic Partners, over 300,000 organisations across the voluntary sector can be reached.
