This report shares the latest insights from the evaluation of the Leeds Neighbourhood Networks (LNNs), building on previous research. The Leeds Neighbourhood Network is made up of 37 community groups that provide a wide range of opportunities, activities and services. They are made up of local schemes that aim to support older people to remain living independently and to participate in their communities through a range of neighbourhood-based activities and services. The report draws on in-depth case studies of six LNNs. Each case study involved a desk-based review of existing evidence and data, and qualitative research with LNN staff, volunteers, members and partners. The evaluation finds that the networks support prevention of ill health through community-based activities and support; help people to manage long-term conditions in order to delay illness severity and maintain a good quality of life; assist people with significant support needs to reduce pressure on healthcare providers.
