Third Sector Workforce
An estimated 57,000 people are employed across Leeds in health and care services, collectively called the health and care workforce.
The health and care workforce is employed across the NHS, third sector, statutory and private sectors, and in Leeds it’s given a shared identity known as #TeamLeeds. A proportion of the health and care workforce is employed by charities, social enterprises, community interest companies or are volunteers, and this is collectively called the Third Sector workforce.
Training and support is available to meet the needs of the Third Sector workforce. This page pulls together and signposts to a range of available resources and information.
Third Sector HR Network
The HR Network meets quarterly and sends a monthly e-bulletin with useful information about resources, training and other staff related information/activities for organisations to access. It exists to share information and collaborate. It is an important space to hear themes from and share good practice across the health and care workforce within the third sector. Health and care is the focus of the network however as much of the emphasis relates to responding to organisational needs its work may be of interest to those organisations delivering services relating to the wider determinants of health such as housing, food aid and more.
