Health and Social Care
The voluntary sector makes a significant contribution to Health and Social Care services, complementing statutory services by bridging gaps in services and supporting seamless service provision.
It is recognised by Welsh Government as a key partner in delivering its health and wellbeing policy, which is reflected in the vision for the NHS Wales where local people are central.
CVSC has two officers who liaise with Third Sector, Health Board and Local Authority to ensure the Health and Social Care provision in Conwy is as strong and united as possible. This includes sitting on development steering groups and hosting a regular Health and Social Care cross sector Network.
CVSC’s Partnership Liaison function provides an advisory, consultative and information service on behalf of the voluntary sector in Conwy.
The service operates at the interface of Welsh Government, the National Health Service, Local Government and voluntary organisations. It aims to promote, facilitate and support the partnership agenda.
Partnership working between the statutory and voluntary sectors covers a wide range of areas;
Health and Social Care
Crime and Disorder
Children and Young People
The Social Value Cymru project is led by Mantell Gwynedd and works in partnership with the other North Wales CVC’s - AVOW, FLVC, Medrwn Môn, CVSC and DVSC to support third sector organisations embed social value within their organisations, and to determine how social value data can inform their decision making. The project also specifically supported 25 organisations through their individual social value journeys with a good many completing a full SROI (social return on investment) report.
A solid legacy is being left in terms of increased skills within the relevant CVC’s, a Trustee Toolkit and information webinars to support Trustees and their organisations to both measure and manage their impact and social value. Ongoing support is provided via the North Wales Social Value Network and the Social Value Forum

The Armed Forces Covenant
The Armed forces Covenant is made up of representatives from Conwy County Borough Council, the Armed Forces in Conwy and the Voluntary, Education and Health Sectors, and was signed in 2014
The aim of the Covenant is to encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces community in their area; promote understanding and awareness amongst the public of issues affecting the Service community and recognise and remember the sacrifices made. The organisations involved have made a commitment to ensure that Conwy has a sustainable Armed Forces and Veteran community and that service provision meets the needs of this community.
