LaingBuisson

LaingBuisson in partnership with Grant Thornton held a conversation about adult social care. This webinar looked at questions about if lessons will have been learned and will social care in general be held in higher esteem? Following the media’s initial focus on acute care in the NHS, the social care sector has now been recognised as the new front line and a vital part of UK infrastructure.

Levelling up Yorkshire and Humber: health as the new wealth post-COVID

NHS Confederation

This report provides a plan to tackle ever-increasing socio-economic inequalities and boost health outcomes in Yorkshire and the Humber by encouraging and supporting more cross-sector working. Leaders and clinicians across the NHS and social care have called for a ‘reset’ to the way health and care are planned, commissioned and delivered, building on the rapid progress already made during the COVID-19 pandemic. The paper argues that the recovery approach must recognise that health and the economy are bound tightly together. Interventions designed to improve health, inclusive growth and wellbeing are in the interests of all local, regional and national partners, businesses and communities and should be a shared priority and endeavour. Businesses and anchor institutions must adopt a stronger health-led and inclusive economic growth agenda, bolstered by increased ‘place-sensitive’ policy and strategy from government and national agencies. There is a role for place-based partnerships across the region – including Integrated Care Systems, Local Enterprise Partnerships and Combined Authorities – to help unlock even more local potential and achieve improved health and inclusive growth for Yorkshire and the Humber.

Changes to the adoption and children regulations: coronavirus (COVID-19)

Department for Education

This consultation seeks views on proposed changes to the Adoption and Children (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to present significant challenges to the country, including the way children’s social care services are delivered. The amendments to the regulations are temporary and will expire on 25 September 2020 – the proposed changes seek to extend a small number of these to manage future challenges. The first part of the document sets out the reason the amendments were needed and what is done to monitor the use of the flexibilities. The subsequent parts of the document set out the regulations that would need to lapse and detail on those that should be extended. The consultation closes on 5 August 2020.

The road to renewal: five priorities for health and care

King's Fund

This piece sets out five priorities to help guide the approach to renewal across health and care in the context of COVID-19. It argues that the pandemic is the biggest challenge the health and care system has faced in living memory and that there is now an imperative to build on the lessons from this experience to bring about positive change, well beyond this crisis. The five priorities set out in the piece provide a framework to help guide the approach to renewal across health and care. They include: a step change on inequalities and population health; lasting reform for social care, including dealing with the funding pressures, and ensuring long term investment and better pay, conditions and training for the social care workforce; putting the workforce centre stage; embedding and accelerating digital change in the wake of recent progress; and reshaping the relationship between communities and public services, including safeguarding the role of voluntary and community organisations as long-term partners in promoting health and wellbeing.

Real time evaluation of Leeds Neighbourhood Networks: response to the COVID 19 pandemic

Centre for Ageing Better

This snapshot report evaluates the Leeds Neighbourhood Networks (LNNs) and how they responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. The networks support older people to remain living independently and to participate in their communities through a range of activities and services that are provided at a neighbourhood level. The report shows that following the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic in March 2020 the LNNs adapted their service offer rapidly to meet the needs of people living in their communities, focusing on the provision of food, medicine and other essential items, and ensuring people had access to social and emotional support. Some LNNs have taken on a ‘community hub’ role which has involved offering support to a broader section of the community, such as younger households and people experiencing financial hardship. Challenges and opportunities facing the LNNs during this period include: the intensification of their work; the tension between addressing needs of the whole community and the older people; an increase in the reach and visibility of the LNNs; there are some concerns about longer-term sustainability as the pandemic continues. The paper concludes by recommending the development of a clear vision about the role of the LNN in the citywide COVID 19 recovery process and understanding how LNNs can be supported to play a full and active role in the recovery process, including what resources and support may be needed.

Mental health and Covid-19: in our own words

Barnardo's UK

Explores children and young people’s experiences of lockdown and identifies what they will need to support their mental health and wellbeing coming out of this pandemic. The report draws on findings from an in-depth UK-wide survey of more than 100 children and young people supported by Barnardo’s and insights from nearly 150 children and young people, gathered through youth workers’ local networks. It examines the impact of COVID-19, mental health and inequalities, and what worked well during the lockdown, and explores the implications of the pandemic for children and young people in a number of settings and domains, including: spending time with family, keeping contact with friends, routine and structure, education and employment, sleep, exercise and diet, hobbies and leisure, and community-based services and support. The report identifies three priorities for UK decision makers: recognise the disproportionate impact the pandemic and lockdown has had on children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing; learn from what children and young people tell us works; and support children and young people with their mental health and wellbeing at the earliest possible stage. The report sets out a series of recommendations, calling for a greater involvement of children and young people in ‘recovery planning’ and provision of long term, sustainable funding for the redesign of local support for children, young people and families’ mental health and wellbeing.
