Voluntary Voices release new report on Personal Health Budgets

8th June 2018


A new report from the Voluntary Voices partnership has found that Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations play a pivotal role in delivering personalised care.  


NAVCA is a member of the Voluntary Voices partnership, whose work with health and care commissioners and the VCSE sector has informed the report: 'IPC and Personal Health Budget Support and Development Programme: Learning and Next Steps'. This explores in detail the successes in delivering Personal Health Budgets (PHBs) and finds that the voluntary sector is key to delivering personalised care.

By Royal Appointment

5th June 2018


We were absolutely thrilled to hear that NAVCA member One Community is to receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest accolade for voluntary groups in the UK.  The 2018 Awards were announced this week to coincide with Volunteers' Week. 


Jean Robert-Jones, Chief Executive of One Community, said:


"We are obviously delighted and very proud of our staff and volunteers. We know that they all go above and beyond what is expected of them because they care passionately about the communities they serve, but to receive this recognition is a great honour, particularly during our 40th Anniversary Year.


"We believe we are the first CVS in Hampshire to receive the award and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters, partners, stakeholders and friends. Without you we could not have achieved this."


Huge congratulations from all at NAVCA and in the NAVCA family, Jean!
