Dialogue at The Care Forum

“If we were not informed about surveys and consultations, we would miss the opportunity to participate. The Care Forum enable this participation”. – VCSE worker, Bristol

What we do

Dialogue is the health and social care insight and engagement service of The Care Forum, supporting the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector across the West of England.

Our work performs to key functions.

First, we develop insight through research and engagement to enhance knowledge and understanding within the sector, improve best practise in service delivery, and develop strategy to promote the longer term sustainability of the regional VCSE sector.

Second, we work to improve engagement, inclusion and collaboration within the regional VSCE sector and between VCSE organisations and commissioners – enabling VCSE organisations to have influence on strategic planning and service delivery, and ensuring health and social care services are effective, connected, and informed.
