The CHiP officers are supporting the third sector to become more involved and influential in the design and delivery of health and social care services by developing knowledge and awareness of health and wellbeing policies and decision making systems. CHiP officers are assisting community groups to establish and ‘grow’ projects in response to locally and nationally identified health and social care needs as well as supporting inter-agency partnerships to work effectively with the third sector, respecting, valuing and responding to their views. We also aim to establish a dynamic local vehicle for facilitating the direct exchange of information and views between the third sector and local integrated health and social care teams.
