Our VCF (Voluntary, Community, and Faith sector) Forums bring together decision makers, members of the public, and those working across voluntary and statutory organisations. We discuss topics related to the health & wellbeing of local people. Find out more here.

CHC assessments

For this forum we partnered with Sheffield CCG and Disability Sheffield to provide an opportunity for constructive discussion for colleagues in the sector who support people who are affected by CHC assessments.

The aims of the Forum were to understand:
• An overview of the current CHC provision in Sheffield and the intentions of the CCG
• What support for service users and carers is available
• How VCF & statutory organisations work together to better support service users and carers


Do health and social care services know what you really think?

Share your ideas and experiences and help services hear what works, what doesn’t, and what you want from care in the future.
