How health partnerships can respond effectively to Covid-19

A new report by Institute of Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) shares eight factors that have enabled health partnerships to respond effectively to Covid-19. Previous barriers to the NHS, councils and the voluntary sector working together – such as information governance, organisational boundaries or agendas, and lack of trust – were removed, or set aside, in order to respond swiftly to a ‘tsunami of need’. This is based on learning from 11 partnerships in different areas of England. 

You can hear directly from some of these areas and other speakers on cross-sector partnership working at a virtual conference on 17 and 18 November.
