The NHS has always been supported, in one way or another, by charities. Now, as we face a rising tide of conditions whose origins lie in social issues of loneliness, inactivity and the like, Iona Joy, NPC Head of Charities, argues the two sectors should formalise their alliance.
NPC CEO Dan Corry argues that, just as the fortunes of the England team may change constantly, so does the context and challenges for social sector organisations. While we don't all have Gareth Southgate to guide us through, we do have NPC Ignites, the perfect place to get the ideas and inspiration to change the world.
On the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS, we launch the first of three blog examining the relationship between the health service and the voluntary sector. Authored by Alex Fox, CEO of Shared Lives Plus, this first piece explores the potential for the voluntary sector to offer support for a growing number of people with long term needs, where the line between health and social care blurs.
Amina Memon, Professor of Psychology at Royal Holloway University blogs to introduce work she has done in collaboration with NPC. She asks does the charity sector really care about diversity, and what is holding it back from acting if it does?
