hvoss (Herefordshire Voluntary Organisations Support Service)

Health and Social Care

Herefordshire has a rich mix of small and medium sized not for profit providers delivering essential health and social care support to vulnerable adults, young people and children. 

Many work under contract to the local authority or NHS and are subject to the rigorous procedures surrounding tendering and procurement.

hvoss used to hold quarterly health and social care forum for organisations working with older people and interest groups for children (CHIG) and young people (YIG). Open to all hvoss members, these networks provided a supportive focus for their activities. Issues of relevance regarding commissioning, contracts or marketing of services are discussed, with speakers invited on key topics relevant to our sector.  Where appropriate, hvoss also represents members’ interests at strategic panels or at the commissioning stage.

Contact us for more information about interest groups and networks we should be providing to support your work.
