Durham Community Action supports Voluntary and Community organisations to build connections and partnerships across the health system with particular focus on organisations that deliver health and wellbeing workstreams across County Durham.
We represent the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector on Health and Wellbeing Forums and Networks locally, regionally and nationally.
We also facilitate a quarterly network for Social Prescribing Links Workers (SPLW) across County Durham - find out more here
Since the introduction of the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS) in 2022, VONNE has represented the VCSE sector as a regional strategic partner. They coordinate a number of health and wellbeing programmes and projects across the region and host a range of networks. We work closely with VONNE and other colleagues within the system.

Health and Wellbeing News
In November 2023 we launched our first Durham Community Action Health & Wellbeing Newsletter, which we’ll be sending out every other month in addition to our monthly Community News.
Within this newsletter we want to highlight health and wellbeing stories from across the sector, link to opportunities that connect you with others or those to get your voice heard and update you on the spaces we’re in and the work we’re doing.
We’d love you to get involved by sending us your news and ideas.
