Publication year:


One of six briefings sharing evaluation findings and lessons from a project to explore the impacts of community led support across the UK, a place-based approach to achieving change in health and social care services, through working closely with local communities and partners in the voluntary, community, business and public sectors. The briefing highlights learning in relation to: local approaches to implementation; effective local leadership; the people community led support is reaching; and whether community led support deliver better outcomes for the same or less resource; and the factors that help to sustain it. The paper highlights five key messages, which include: the importance of understanding local context and knowing what works in each place, who the local players are and how best to work with them; and having the right kind of leadership, at all levels and across the system.
