What is JOY

There’s a lot of different parts to Joy, but one part of the system, the Marketplace, is being introduced to support the Community and Voluntary sector to make and receive referrals, the ambition is that Joy will help to establish easier, more streamlined ways of working between the community and care sectors. 

The key points of Joy’s Marketplace are:  

  • Makes it easier for community-based services to refer and/or signpost into other community organisations (as well as other services e.g. local social prescribing services).  
  • Provides community-based organisations with outcomes data to showcase how their services are leading to health improvement.  
  • Identifies gaps in service provision.  

Who is this event for?

Any VCSE groups are interested in knowing more about how to engage with the software and make those links with the personal care workers.

Personal care workers are encouraged to come along and listen to how VCSE are going to engage with the system.
