PLANNING AND DECISION-MAKING

Each forum has formal links with local planning and decision-making processes and is a mechanism for local partnership working.

Through membership of the forums, provider organisations are increasingly willing to set aside commercial interests to work together to continually improve the quality of support they provide.

MEMBERS

Members include senior representatives from voluntary and independent sector providers, the local health and social care partnerships and others responsible for the planning and delivery of support.

See the relevant Provider forum for contacts and how to join.
