Your Invitation to a Forum Central Third Sector Health and Social Care Leaders Network Event

Supporting the STP – What’s the Offer from the Health & Social Care Third Sector?
 Tuesday 13th September, 8.30am – 10.30am
 The Vinery Centre, 20 Vinery Terrace, Leeds LS9 9LU

As a member of the Third Sector Health and Social Care Leaders Network, you are invited to attend a special Forum Central Workshop.  We need your help to develop the third sector’s ‘offer’ about how we support the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP). The workshop will focus on what the current offer from the sector is and what it could be in the future.

 Some of the other delivery partners are also coming to the workshop, including the leads on the workforce planning sub-group, so it will be a great way of ensuring that  colleagues from  other sectors hear first-hand some of the discussions and ideas that are emerging from us.

If you would like to reserve your place and be part of these important service shaping discussions, please contact (0113) 242 1321 or email:

Thanks, and we hope you can make it!

We are looking for a delivery partner to help us gain a better understanding of how many older learning disabled people are experiencing social isolation in our city.

We want to know what the barriers are for them in developing meaningful social relationships and how they would like to tackle their isolation and loneliness.
