In this session, we will explore something of the diverse and fascinating world of the Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprise and Faith Sector and their critical contribution to individual and community health and wellbeing. Sam Glover of Healthwatch Essex will share an overview of the sector and their partnerships with local health and care whilst key local VCSE&F leaders will give us an insight into the work of their organisations.  There will also be an opportunity to explore and discuss the topic with VCSE and other colleagues from across the region in small groups and plenary.
