Reports on a roundtable event, jointly hosted by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and Madano, to discuss the impact of the Care Act on the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector and the new opportunities it offers. Issues discussed include: the opportunities and challenges of the prevention and well-being agenda, what the Care Act means for the type of services that the VCSE sector provides, what the Care Act means for commissioning practice, what enables greater engagement between the VCSE sector and other and the barriers to greater engagement. Key messages from the discussion include: the importance of co-production and design; for the VCSE sector to work together to develop a holistic response, rather than creating a competitive culture; for commissioners and providers to understand where preventative care 'fits'; cross-discipline working which focuses on outcomes; and the need for real cultural and behavioural change, with a willingness for commissioners and the VCSE sector to work together.
