Ecorys and partners manage the HSCVF funding programme for the Department of Health. As the lead, Ecorys works across the private and voluntary sectors in partnership with CSV, Attend and Eastside Primetimers to deliver a service built on sector and organisational strengths.
The HSCVF supports voluntary sector organisations to test out new ways of working with their volunteers in the delivery of health and care services. It also provides funded organisations with a package of capacity building support to help them become more sustainable. All the innovative projects are funded under themes that are strategically aligned and their outcomes support the Department of Health in ensuring coherent investment and reinforcement of the role of volunteering in health, public health and social care.
