I am pleased to inform you that the second Commissioning Forum has been scheduled for 30th January 9.15– 12.30 at the South Fens Business Centre in Chatteris. A venue map is attached.
Are you a voluntary or community group working in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough? Do you know that Cambridgeshire & Peterborough have a new commissioning unit that decides how all contracts and grants are awarded ?
Support Cambridgeshire has been working with Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Commissioning Unit on developing better understanding and interaction between commissioners and voluntary groups.
We asked in our annual state of the sector survey if you wanted to learn more about what the Commissioning Unit does, what their priorities are, what impact changes might have on your service and how can we work better together. The response was overwhelmingly in favour of some kind a regular forum – recognising the difficulties some can have in getting around the county we are proposing to set up two identical forum’s one south, one north.
This session will see the lead commissioner outlining the units priorities and asking for your comments, we hope the session will be informative and very interactive.
