Health & Social Care BVSC is involved in a number of health related projects working in partnership with; the health and care system, local authority, and the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector. Current projects and areas of focus include: Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: We have continued to support the roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccination programme for Birmingham and Solihull. In particular we have been working closely with partners in West Birmingham and a range of community providers, to support community engagement around the vaccination uptake. Non-digital engagement – Public Health: We are undertaking work with Public Health and their commissioned community providers, around non-digital engagement in the community. Route 2 Wellbeing Birmingham portal: Health & Wellbeing directory of services across Birmingham managed by BVSC. Visit the Route2Wellbeing Birmingham portal and find local services, searching within the range of categories or setting a location. On behalf of the Birmingham Children’s Partnership, we are in the process of migrating the Early Help Community Connectors mapped assets to Route 2 Wellbeing Birmingham. This will be progressed over the coming months – watch this space for the launch! Social Prescribing – Through the National Academy of Social Prescribing (NSAP), BVSC is working with the Midlands Regional Social Prescribing team. As part of this, Local Infrastructure Organisations across the Midlands are coming together to share learning around social prescribing in the different areas. Social Prescribing in Birmingham and Solihull - we will share details soon on how we aim to support the social prescribing agenda locally, working with the VCSE sector.
