We hosted a series of events around ‘The Power in our Communities’ and listened to the conversations about how everyone, including public sector, third sector and community organisations, can support a community led approach to health and social care. Feedback indicated that people recognised this as a positive way forward but needed more information about how they could do this.
Outside the Box and Senscot held sessions with community organisations to understand what a good approach to health and social care would look like- OTB Workshops Detail. ihub held a similar session for HSCPs ask what support did they need- Workshop Detail.
We used what we heard and have produced a practical guide for HSCPs about actions required to implement a community led approach to health and social care. Commissioning Differently: Actions for Health and Social Care Partnerships to Implement a Community Led Approach
