What is vSPA?

Voluntary Sector Single Point of Access (vSPA) connects Health & Social Care Professionals to voluntary sector providers by offering a clear and easily accessible pathway. vSPA makes available up to date local knowledge and expertise found within the voluntary sector to support vulnerable adults and people with long term conditions.

"[vSPA] was excellent and 'a real service to the community"

It enables access to preventative services, practical support services, self help and support networks, volunteering opportunities, information, advice and guidance services in order to improve outcomes for people in maintaining and improving their own health and wellbeing and reduce the need for higher interventions

The vSPA service used to be called First Contact Derby and operated in a very similar way.
