What was covered in your sessions?
Our session told the story of how Edinburgh’s Third Sector Interface created, developed and delivered a community commissioning-based approach for Edinburgh’s Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund - alongside key voluntary and public sector partners. This Scottish Government investment was to provide mental health and wellbeing projects and activities at a grass-roots levels in communities across Edinburgh and was part of a national programme of funding delivered by Third Sector Interfaces in every local authority in Scotland.
Was there any useful feedback or reflection from the participants?
As part of our presentation we asked participants to answer 2 questions on post-it notes:
• What do you like about current commissioning processes?
• What might you change?
This was linked to a Q&A and we are collating these notes at the moment.
