About the Alliance

The Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Health and Wellbeing Alliance (HW Alliance) has been established to:

  • Facilitate integrated working between the voluntary and statutory sectors
  • Support a two way flow of information between communities, the VCSE sector and policy leads
  • Amplify the voice of the VCSE sector and people with lived experience to inform national policy
  • Facilitate co-produced solutions to promote equality and reduce health inequalities

The HW Alliance is jointly managed by the Department of Health (DH), Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England and is made up of 21 VCSE Members that represent communities who share protected characteristics or that experience health inequalities. Through their networks HW Alliance Members can link with communities and VCSE organisations across England. Individuals and VCSE organisations who would like to share their experiences and ideas with NHS England, DH and PHE can do so via HW Alliance Members.
