Get involved in planning mental health services for children and young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

There will be a new Children and Young People’s mental health strategy for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough from April 2022. This will be a plan which tells us how services and projects will help children and young people aged 0 to 25 who have mental health problems. The strategy will be owned and shared by the Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Board as part of the wider mental health system.

An organisation called taproot is running discussion events to engage local people with deciding the priorities of the strategy. The events are open to professionals, service leads, parents/carers and young people (as long as they are appropriately supported to take part by an accompanying adult). Attendees will be sent relevant information before they come. To book tickets, follow the booking links in the table below.

Update on the development of the Health Care ICS

On the 28th of September, the Health and Wellbeing Network met to discuss the new changes and developments around the new Integrated Care System, implemented within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Julie Farrow, the CEO of Hunts Forum and lead organisation on the Support Cambridgeshire partnership, updated the group, explaining the ICS and back story and talked through the expectation moving forward. It was finally ended talking about a new pot of money that has been won around getting the VCSE engaged within the process.

The presentation can be viewed again below. Slides can be viewed here > HWN Sept 21

Following the presentation, the group were asked to think about two questions and feedback was inputted into a Jambaord, which can be accessed here we welcome further comments and ideas (Link live until December 2021)

The below links showcase more information for those who would like to know more about the ICS and ICP’s.

Police and Crime Commissioner wants to hear from VCSE

As set out in the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, the Police and Crime Commissioner, Darryl Preston, must produce a Police and Crime Plan.

The Commissioner has today launched a month-long consultation with the public about what should be included within the Plan, but he is also keen to hear from organisations and community groups who may have a role to play in keeping our communities safe and tackling crime.  The Commissioner is keen to ensure the Plan reflects any shared outcomes we may have. Below is a link to a stakeholder survey for community and voluntary groups can fill out, which will feed into the development of the Plan.

Community and Voluntary Survey 

 

The Plan must set out how the Commissioner will ensure victims get the help they need, how he will support and challenge the Chief Constable in their approach to policing, how he will commission services and award grants, and how policing will be delivered within an ethical framework.

While the Plan has to meet a number of statutory responsibilities, the Commissioner wants it to be a meaningful document that helps us all to take action and see results. Having listened to communities, victims, and stakeholders, the Plan will be centred around tackling crime and keeping communities safe.

The Police and Crime Commissioner is asking individuals to complete the public survey by the 30th July 2021

Becoming an ICS – We want your views

Health and care organisations across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are becoming more joined up than ever before after the creation of a new Integrated Care System (ICS) for the area.

Integrated Care Systems, or ICSs, are partnerships between organisations that meet the health and care needs of local people. There are 42 Integrated Care Systems in England, with our Integrated Care System covering all of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

By working together, different parts of the health and care system are better able to improve the health and wellbeing of local communities, reducing health inequalities and putting patients at the heart of everything we do.

Now that we have been accredited as an ICS, we are looking at how we ensure we are continuing to improve and meeting the needs of the population. As part of this we recognise that a key element of our success will be listening to and involving our staff and key stakeholders every step of the way.

It is vital those who know our local communities, understand the challenges we face and have unique insights into our patient needs have the opportunity to share their views on the future of local health and care services.

This is why we are asking for your views via a short survey. This will help us understand what you think an ICS is and should focus on alongside getting your views on elements such as branding, visions and ways in which those who would like to be more involved can do in the future. The survey will run until 25th June 2021 and we will share the results with you all soon after. You can access the survey HERE

Listening to Community Organisations

By Victoria Hopkins

The Support Fenland project continues at pace this week as we met with members of a wide range of community organisations across the district. A key part of our project is to understand the specific needs of Fenland, so we wanted to talk directly to the groups who are already active in the community.

There are a huge number and wide variety of groups supporting Fenland communities, ranging from large organisations supporting the whole county and beyond, to small voluntary based organisations supporting a very specific area within a town or village. Often these groups have been set up in response to a need that is emerging in the community, and so these groups are vital for support organisations such as CCVS and Hunts Form to listen to when we’re planning how we can better support their work.

At this week’s session we had 19 representatives from 17 different organisations of different sizes, and over a fast paced one hour Zoom call we learnt an awful lot!

When asked about the challenges that their groups are facing, there were some common themes emerging. The ability of each group to reach and communicate with their communities has become limited, either due to social distancing or a reduction in funding. Digital services offered within Fenland do not have a high take-up rate. Volunteers have a lack of confidence; whether that is dealing with new Covid measures or just coming back to volunteering after a significant break, the groups are finding that those volunteers need an increased level of support. Finally, there is a lack of awareness of the variety and scale of the issues within Fenland outside of the district.

We then talked about the opportunities that were coming in the future. There was a lot to celebrate and look forward to, and the focus was on ensuring that all of the positive ways of working that have come out of the emergency Covid response, such as new partnerships, closer relationships and new services, continue.

Finally, the conversation turned to how the groups wanted to raise their collective voice. It was acknowledged that networking and bringing people together will be key, and that there will be many benefits of this; knowing which groups are already delivering services to residents and being able to point people in the right direction, enabling increased partnership working on common issues, giving communities a place to celebrate all that is happening and acting as an advocate for all that is great about living in Fenland.

A huge thanks to everyone who joined us for such an open, honest and lively meeting. We’re looking forward to continuing the conversation with even more members of the community at next week’s open event.

The New Integrated Care System

On the morning of the 21st April, Mike More the Independent Chair of the STP and Interim Chair of the Integrated Care System (ICS) shadow board came and spoke to a group of CEO’s and top-line management professionals about the new health care system which will replace the CCG.

Mike took the group through where the idea of the ICS came from, and how it will work and this was then followed by questions from the group. The slides can be found HERE

Have Your Say on Changes to Adult Social Care Charging Policy

Members of the public are invited to have a say over Cambridgeshire County Council’s plans to change its Adult Social Care charging policy.
The council wants the people who use its social care services to pay a bigger contribution for their care to raise extra money.

It is proposing five changes which would bring in nearly £2m of extra money for the council. Read the full story over on the Healthwatch Cambridgeshire website.
