Feedback to Alex Fox at ACEVO’s Health & Social Care Conference, 21 October, Leeds

Mark Winter, Director of ACEVO Solutions

As part of the VCSE Review consultation process, we have arranged for people who are interested in hearing from Alex Fox, the VCSE Review Chair and CEO of Shared Lives Plus, to attend the ACEVO Autumn Health and Social Care Conference in Leeds, for free.

This short day conference on the 21 October is a perfect opportunity to consider what this parliament has in store for third sector organisations working in health and care and the conference will focus on the critical role of the third sector in helping to drive changes across the health economy. In this context, Alex Fox will be providing an update on the VCSE Review consultation and will be seeking feedback from attendees.
