Shared Ambition Initiative – Feedback sought on documents to support more effective working between the VCSE and public sector

The Shared Ambition initiative is aimed at developing more effective working relations between the VCSE and public sector, particularly the NHS. Started in August 2020 the initiative is linked with the development of a VCSE Assembly for Norfolk and Waveney. The process to date through a series of workshops and engagement exercises has developed a Principles and Behaviours document and Plan document as well as a general report as the outputs of its first phase of delivery. These are provided in draft for wider input feedback from across the sectors.
