Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) is inviting representatives from the VCSE sector in the county to a Health & Wellbeing collaboration event in February 2024.

This event will help GCC to draw together discussions and continue the journey that they embarked upon in their last Stakeholder get together earlier this year.

Help us to shape a new training and development programme for the VCSE sector in the county around “Conversations for Change”.

We recognise that opening up conversations with individuals about health improvements they can make can be challenging. We are developing a series of training and coaching support sessions for you and your staff team to be able to have these conversations more effectively. 

The Stay Well This Winter campaign led by the ICB (One Glos) is now live.
