Over 10% of third sector organisations in Wales are active in the field of health and social care, accounting for the highest rates of employment by sector. Following the launch last year of Welsh Government's long term strategy for health and social care, A Healthier Wales, WCVA and Welsh Government will hold a free conference to explore how the sector can play its part in transforming services for the people of Wales.

The conference will be opened by Vaughan Gething, the Minister for Health and Social Care.  The programme will include insight from third sector members of the Regional Partnership Boards, and workshops on a range of topics including social prescribing, co-production, infoengine, developing the role of volunteers in health and social care, social value forums, evaluation of the Social Services and Well-being Act, workforce development, Transformation Fund and Integrated Care Fund projects, and more.

Ruth Marks, WCVA Chief Executive, said: 'This conference is a unique opportunity for the third sector and Welsh Government to come together and explore how we can work in partnership to realise a transformation in health and social care. The sector has a crucial role to play - it's vital that we collaborate, with each other, with government and with other partners, to maximise the positive impact we can have on people and communities across Wales.'
