Recent legislation has extended Local Authority responsibility for health and wellbeing, required the integration of health and care services and the evaluation of the impact of services on the wellbeing of the community. This has required LAs, the NHS and Community organizations to work together to plan and evaluate the services they support in new ways. This session introduced some of the challenges this poses, while the ideas on co production and the tools for evaluating behaviour change show some of the methods that can be used to help plan and evaluate initiatives in this sphere.
Paper in SMQ on Value for Money in Behaviour Change available here.
Led by Portsmouth City Council and funded by the European Integration Fund has issued a series of reports setting out lessons for co production and social integration. Read more here. We ran a dissemination day for representatives of integration projects from 6 EU Countries.
