The Suffolk VASP (Voluntary and Statutory Partnership) for Mental Health is a network for anyone with an interest in mental health.


VASP meetings take place across Suffolk to enable local organisations across the voluntary and statutory sectors to be:

  • Partnership Working

  • Raising Awareness

  • Making Connections

  • Reducing Stigma

  • Improving Services

  • Identifying Gaps

  • Linking People

  • Giving a Voice


First set up over 20 years ago, the network is recognised by many as a reliable voice for service providers, government bodies, charitable organisations, practitioners, carers and users of mental health related services alike.


The VASP is supported and sustained by a large number of individuals and organisations, over 1,000 people in Suffolk, committed to the benefits of working in partnership.


As a collective, the VASP significantly benefits mental health services across Suffolk, by enabling services and groups to be meeting each other and exchanging information in the seven Locality VASP meetings, plus in the Strategic VASP meetings, and by the frequent VASP sharing news updates by e-mail.


The VASP is an open forum, anyone with an interest in mental health is welcome to get involved (free to participate), with Locality VASP meetings regularly taking place in several locations across Suffolk.
