The Community Voices for Health Working Group was launched in March 2010. Five capacity building events were delivered in 2011 designed to build the capacity of a diverse range of community organisations, with varying levels of experience, to influence decision-makers in organisations that impact on health and well-being especially local councils and the NHS. The Community Voices for Health Working Group is now run by London Voluntary Services Council as their strong membership and expertise will progress and evolve the work of the Group.
