5. Minimise overlap and duplication
Structures and guidance should help minimise overlap and duplication, avoid citizen fatigue, social exclusion and frustration, and ensure proper co-ordination with all relevant local bodies, some of whom may have their own CE strategy. It is necessary to understand that third sector organisations provide local connections with a multitude of specific interests and geographic representation, and links with national voluntary bodies. This should be properly supported by the contribution of independent local Health, Social Care and Wellbeing facilitators, who should continue to be employed by CVCs, and provide a valuable source of information direct to the two NED's, CHCs and independent appointees to the Public Health NHS Trust.
Independent local Health, Social Care and Wellbeing facilitators have the potential to support the necessary engagement with all health, social care and wellbeing groups, but this will need to be monitored. This is significant because those experiencing social exclusion are far greater in number than those covered by the Communities First programme. In this way it should be possible to optimise the potential for seeking out 'hard to reach' groups, whilst sustaining a dialogue with the LHB Board and the Public Health Wales NHS Trust, without the new bodies duplicating work already undertaken by existing partners.
