The One Croydon Alliance invites suitable expressions of interest to the Local VoluntaryPartnership Market Engagement Event to be held on 31 January 2018, 1.00 -3.00pm at the Braithwaite Hall, Croydon Town Hall, Katharine Street, Croydon CR0 1NX.

One Croydon Alliance is running this workshop to share thinking to date and to explore a series of questions that will enable them to inform the specifications for the formation of a Local Voluntary Partnership (LVP) programme as part of the Out of Hospital/Active and Supportive Communities programme.

The workshop will be of interest to any organisations and groups with an interest in being a partner of the Local Voluntary Partnership programme.

The Local Voluntary Partnership programme is to be formed of Voluntary Community Organisations. You would be considered to be a Voluntary Community Organisation if you are a not for profit within the third sector and if a person might reasonably consider that you act for the benefit of the community in England.

The aim of the workshop is to:


  • Share the vision for development of the voluntary and community sector model as part of health and social care integration in Croydon.
  • Explore a number of questions with potential partners to help understand the capability and capacity of the market to deliver the vision
  • Take feedback from potential partners about opportunities and barriers
  • Provide additional information and answer questions about the next steps.
