The development of preventative approaches and those which promote independence and wellbeing have gained importance since the implementation of the Care Act 2014.

Prevention and encouraging people to be more proactive about their health and wellbeing is also central to the vision of the NHS Five Year Forward View.

SCIE’s resource aims to inform the case for commissioning prevention services in adult social care through highlighting examples of good practice across England together with recent prevention-related research.

Homeshare pilot programme

Homesharing is typically where an older person shares a home with a younger person, who in turn needs affordable rent and who can offer support and companionship. SCIE commissioned the evaluation of a pilot project and worked with various partners.
