Public Health Liverpool and The Life Rooms at Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust have developed a pilot for a community based mental health prevention offer which will support individuals and communities post the COVID-19 pandemic.
Part of this pilot features a Micro-Commissioning Programme aimed at mid to large sized VCSE organisations to encourage them to develop activities, initiatives and partnerships across communities to support the health and wellbeing needs of Liverpool residents. Commissioned agencies are encouraged to develop meaningful collaborations with grass roots VCSE organisations to ensure that communities have robust and varied support where they live.
Michael Crilly, Director of Social Inclusion & Participation said; ‘We are so lucky to have such a diverse and vibrant voluntary sector in our City. The sector played a vital role in supporting our communities during the pandemic. As we work towards recovery, we are proud to commission these two VCSE organisations who are seeking to support our communities’ wellbeing through innovative activity and meaningful partnerships, helping them to gain or remain in paid employment.’
