AT ELEMENTAL, WE BELIEVE THAT THE VOLUNTARY, COMMUNITY AND SOCIAL ENTERPRISE SECTOR (VCSE) PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN REDUCING HEALTH INEQUALITIES BY IMPROVING LIVES AND SUPPORTING COMMUNITIES THROUGH THEIR SOCIAL PRESCRIBING PROGRAMMES AND SERVICES, NOW MORE THAN EVER.
WHILST THERE IS A HUGE RELIANCE ON THE VCSE SECTOR, THERE ARE ALSO EXAMPLES OF GREAT PARTNERSHIP WORKING WITH ORGANISATIONS IN HEALTH, HOUSING, LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND EDUCATION.
Unfortunately, there are many VCSE organisations struggling to gain funding for their programmes and maintain the services that are vitally important to community wellbeing.
Increasing access to services, reaching those who need the most support, empowering people and demonstrating impact are all important factors to securing funding and developing a sustainable growth strategy.
WE’RE MORE THAN JUST A SOFTWARE COMPANY
Not only is Elemental here to provide the digital infrastructure to enable social prescribing to be accessible and help provide the evidence that shows what is working well, but we’re here to ensure you get the funding you need to sustain and grow your programmes and services.
