As integration evolves, PKAVS is working with our statutory partners and the Third Sector to support the deepening involvement of Third Sector and local communities in the integration agenda. The main conduit between the Integration Joint Board and the Third Sector is a Third Sector Health & Social Care Strategic Forum.
The Forum is open to any third sector organisation contributing to, or with an interest in, health and wellbeing outcomes in Perth & Kinross. Terms of Reference for the Forum is available in here.
About the Forum
Our Third Sector Health and Social Care Strategic Forum was established in June 2014. The Forum meets every 4-6 weeks to consider key business for the health and social care partnership such as the Integration Joint Board papers and to enable dialogue between third sector colleagues about key topics relating to integration. Agendas and Minutes for the Forum meeting are available here.
Started from just over 10 members, the Forum has been growing fast and steadily. So far we have 118 individual members comprising staff and volunteers from 45 Third Sector groups and organisations operating in Perth and Kinross.
Terms of Reference
The Terms of Reference was developed by Forum members and it was agreed that all Forum members should sign the Terms of Reference.
Representatives and Groups
The forum also has a representative structure for partnership groups. Follow this link for more details on our representatives for groups.
Join the Forum
We are striving to reach out to as many third sector organisations as possible. If you would like to get involved in the Forum, or would like have a chat, please feel free to pop in at our drop-ins, or get in touch with Hong Zhang.
