BSW Integrated Care System – Voice of the VCSE

Bath and North East Somerset (BaNES), Swindon and Wiltshire Together is an Integrated Care system (BSW ICS) that brings NHS organisations together with local authorities, third-sector organisations and other partners across BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire. Watch their helpful explainer video here on how it works.

Nationally and locally, councils for voluntary services (CVS), also known as Infrastructure organisations, are playing a key role in developing ICS structures as the voice for the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector.

For BSW, the CVS’s are 3SG in BaNES, Voluntary Action Swindon and Wessex Community Action for Wiltshire, together with the Rural Community Council for Wiltshire and Swindon, Community First. These organisations have partnered to form a BSW VCSE Leadership Alliance at the system level.
