The Voluntary Sector Service (VSS), part of the Care Forum would like to invite you to a conference that focuses on prevention and early intervention in health, wellbeing and social care.
Event takes place on Wednesday October 24th 2018, 9:30am-12:30pm in the David Hiatt Conference Centre at the Vassall Centre, Fishponds, BS16 2QQ.
The aim of this event is to:  

  • inform VCSE organisations about the latest developments in local preventative strategy and planning
  • explore different ways of demonstrating the impact and value of VCSE organisations in delivering preventative work
  • consider ways in which VCSE organisations can extend their impact in delivering the wider preventative agenda

Final conference details are being finalised and we’ll let you know exactly how the agenda will look closer to the time but there will be a selection of talks on prevention and a choice of workshops that will strengthen the work that you do. You will be updated by representatives from the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) on the prevention plan as well as be able to engage with the  Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and their priorities. Wideranging workshops being put in place include technology in prevention, understanding digital health, social prescribing, Healthy Lifestyles and making every contact count.
