“This is a welcome recognition for the voluntary sector and a call to action from Jeremy Hunt. ACEVO has tirelessly argued that only partnership between the state and the voluntary sector can deliver the personalised, integrated, twenty first century health and social care we need. It’s good that the Secretary of State is prepared to work with us to unleash the potential of community and social healthcare providers. We look forward to working more closely on these matters with him in the months ahead.”
