Meet the VCSE Buyers: Working Well (Work and Health) Programme

Register your general interest to meet with Prime Providers applying for the Working Well (Work and Health) Programme in Greater Manchester and find out about their approach to Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) inclusion as part of project delivery.

In response to feedback and consultation with organisations in our network the GMCVO Technical Assistance team are opening registration for VCSE organisations who are interested in meeting with potential Prime Provider organisations bidding for the Working Well contract.

An Outline of Approach form has been circulated to Prime Provider organisations to better understand:

a) their approach to VCSE inclusion;

b) specific specialisms or competencies needed to support their application for Working Well.

Prime Providers have until Thursday 27th May 2017 to return their Outline of Approaches.  Following this representatives from Prime Provider organisations will be invited to sixty-minute sessions to meet VCSE organisations who are interested in their Outline Approach.

Once you have registered your general interest here you will recieve a secondary invitation to attend individual sessions with Prime Providers.

Individual Prime Provider sessions will be held on:

  • Friday 12th May 2017


  • Monday 15th May 2017

If you cannot attend sessions on 12/05 or 15/05 but would like to stay informed about the Meet the VCSE Buyer sessions please still register on this general interest event and contact Louis Brooks.

Registration for this event will close on 3rd May 2017.
