Report commissioned by the Richmond Group of Charities and its partners for the Doing the Right Thing project.

This report is for everyone working in the health and care system in its widest sense. These include statutory system leaders at national and local levels, health and care providers in the public, private and voluntary sector, and interested commentators.

The evidence presented here will be of interest to those seeking to forge partnerships and commission services. The recommendations for action are aimed at statutory health and care system leaders, health and care commissioners, and voluntary sector leaders.

While this research has been drawn primarily on the evidence and experience of large VCS organisations, it includes the views of health system leaders relating to charities of all sizes. Its recommendations will therefore be relevant for national, local and federated VCS organisations.
