HealthNet is hosted by Voluntary and Community Action Sunderland and supported by Healthwatch Sunderland.

HealthNet Sunderland Presentations (2)

HealthNet members meet on a monthly basis at Voluntary & community Action Sunderland (VCAS) to provide an arena for discussion on issues relating to Health and Social Care

Monthly presentations are part of the format, they are informative, thought provoking and pertinent to members, the wider sector and the general public

NJC pay scales (1)

NJC scales are local government pay scales, which are extensively used in the voluntary sector. They are a result of negotiations between trade unions (UniteUnison and GMB) and Local Government Association. They are all membership organisations and can be approached by their members to answer enquiries. Alternatively your local authority may be able to provide advice. 

Please do not contact NAVCA about pay scales as they are not involved in these negotiations in any way and cannot provide any further information on pay scales beyond what is on this page.
