As set out in the NHS Long Term Plan, we are extending current service models for 0 to 25 year olds which will deliver an integrated approach across health, social care, education and the voluntary sector, such as the evidenced-based ‘iThrive’ operating model.

The ‘NHS Mental Health Implementation Plan 2019/20 – 2023/24’ recognises that voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations play an essential role in the delivery of the ambitions of the NHS Long Term Plan. The Implementation Plan provides a range of resources to support system leaders for working with VCSE organisations to ensure the design and delivery of services is co-produced.
