Working with our VCF sector


We commission a range of services from local voluntary, community and faith (VCF) organisations towards improving wellbeing and addressing health inequalities in Sefton. This supports our priority work in Shaping Sefton, our annual operational plan, ‘Highway to Health’, as well as the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and Health and Sefton's Health and Wellbeing Strategy that we work on together with the council.
