14 Raising your profile – hints & tips Who do you want to develop a relationship with? (CCG Pathway specialist? Public Health lead? District Council officer? ) Collaborate and co-operate with other organisations. (Networks, forums.) Demonstrate the difference - numbers of users, cost, waiting list Prepare the ground – what are your messages? Who are you targeting? Research local priorities Develop your ‘pitch’ (30 seconds; 5 mins) Summarise your points 1 side A4 Are you listed in current service directories e.g. Heron? (Watch out for new directory opportunities.) Linked in to Voluntary Sector Engagement Project? 14

15 Hints & tips for commissioners Consider most appropriate way to make best use of the VCO ‘offer’ Don’t ham-string with swathes of bureaucracy and lengthy procurement processes Consider the alternatives – the ‘obvious’ candidate; grant-funding (conditions) Meet smaller orgs where they are – their smallness is what makes them different and can sometimes be what you need to tackle perennial problems. 15
