Better Care Stronger Communities Commissioning

Consultation for Better Care Stronger Communities Funding

Our funding for voluntary sector partners focuses prevention, promoting equalities and improving outcomes for individuals. It delivers the following services: 

  • Activities to support carers
  • Stroke support
  • Dementia support
  • HIV support
  • Volunteers to befriend older people
  • Volunteers to support women that have suffered trauma
  • Post-natal depression support

We are now preparing for the recommissioning of the Better Care Stronger Communities offer, working towards implementing new contracts from 1 April 2023.

The first part of the recommissioning process is to consult with providers,  individuals, carers, councillors and town and parish councils about our proposed delivery.

The feedback from this public consultation will be used to develop the tender process which will be advertised in the Autumn.  


This consultation is open from 20th July 2022 until 10th October 2022

Consultation Topic
  • Health services and facilities
  • Mental health
  • Older people
  • Social services and social care
  • Voluntary and community sector issues
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • Voluntary and community groups / organisations
