National Voices is the coalition of charities that stands for people being in control of their health and care. We work for a strong patient and citizen voice and services built around people. We stand up for voluntary organisations and their vital work for people’s health and care.
We have more than 140 charity members and 20 professional and associate members. Our membership covers a diverse range of conditions and communities and connects with the experiences of millions of people.
We help people and organisations to improve the knowledge, understanding, skills, and
confidence they need to engage more effectively and to make their approaches more
We have expertise in what matters to people relating to health and care, how to involve
people, and how to work with the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
Our work falls into three streams:
• Supporting national policy and system design
• Supporting the vital role that the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector
plays in health and care
• Supporting the adoption and spread of person-centred approaches
