Infrastructure co-design session information and consultation

Infrastructure co-design session information and consultation

Last year on Thursday 6 December 2018, Manchester City Council (MCC) and Manchester Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), through its Manchester Health & Care Commissioning (MHCC) partnership, held a joint review of their Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) infrastructure contracts held with Macc (Manchester’s local voluntary and community sector support organisation).

The purpose of undertaking this joint review was to provide feedback on the existing services to inform the next steps and future infrastructure contract.

Based on the feedback, the Our Manchester VCS Programme Board and MHCC Executive agreed to extend the original timeline for procurement of the new contract for a further six months to allow for a co-design process to be completed.

A co-design group has been established as part of the process to develop the new service model and contract. Delivered across three sessions, facilitated by the Programme Team, the purpose of the co-design group is to make a set of recommendations to the Our Manchester VCS Programme Board on the key principles, objectives and outcomes for the new contract.

All of the details of the co-design group including membership, role and boundaries, decision making, presentations and notes from the sessions can be found below:
