Everyone agrees that building community capacity is vital to achieving sustainable health and wellbeing.
Whilst there are some excellent examples of innovation, it is clear that system wide support is needed if the sector is to progress at scale and pace.
Think Local Act Personal and partners from Public Health England, NHS England, NHS Alliance and Coalition for Collaborative Care are delighted to invite you to participate in an Empowering and engaging communities ‘event.
- Delegates will have a strong understanding of the key research, evidence and practice base supporting this new model of working
- Delegates will have been supported to co-produce a community capacity building acon plan based on their particular local priorities
- Delegates will have agreed what further support is needed to embed their acon plan. These contributions will inform the content of future workshops.
Who should attend: Health and Wellbeing Boards, NHSE Commissioners, Voluntary Sector Providers.
We encourage several representatives from each locality to aend including citizen and voluntary sector representation. This approach will enable focused discussion and support the development of a local acon plan.
