Social Tech Meets

Working in partnership with Consult and Design, our Social Tech Meets bring the social sector together with the tech sector - to promote innovation, collaboration and digital transformation.

North East Social Prescribing

With NHS England and other stakeholders we have established a North East Social Prescribing Network Steering Group and host the Regional Social Prescribing Facilitator. Working together to enable social prescribing to become part of the routine accessible, sustainable health offer across the region, we are ensuring we support and build on existing voluntary and community sector infrastructure and asset based approaches.

Health and Wellbeing

We represent the VCSE sector as a strategic partner in health and care system-wide workstreams that form part of the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS), the country's largest ICS which serves more than three million people.

ICS’s have evolved from sustainability and transformation partnerships and bring together NHS providers, commissioners and local authorities to work in partnership in planning and commissioning care and providing ‘system’ leadership at strategic level.  

Criminal Justice

Through our partnership with Clinks we provide support to voluntary organisations working in the Criminal Justice System. Specifically, coordinating the Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) work.


We convene the Membership+ supporter Chief Executive Network to encourage peer learning and support and the North East Funders Network to share learning and best practice amongst regional and national funders.


Through collaboration with specialists we aid delivery of governance support to the sector.

Innovation and Digital

Working with leaders in their field, we are delivering programmes of digital and innovation support to the North East voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
