New Building Community Capacity content on the TLAP website

There is a new report “People, places and possibilities: Progress on Local Area Coordination in England and Wales”, which looks at the progress made in implementing local area coordination in England and Wales between 2012 and 2015.

Also a couple of videos to point out.

Firstly a fantastic film from Sense UK, which looks at how personalisation has worked for a group of people who have sensory impairments with additional learning and other associated disabilities.

Also, there is a video from Doncaster Social Prescribing. It’s the story of Joan and her dog Badger and shows how a personalisation programme set up by Joan’s social worker helped her regain control of her life, after some mental and physical health problems had set her back and prevented her from doing things she enjoyed as well as day-to-day tasks.

Supporting CCGs and HWBs to support integrated personal commissioning and collaborative care

We have added a new resource to our library.

“Supporting Clinical Commissioning Group’s and Health and Wellbeing Board’s to support integrated personal commissioning and collaborative care”; is a report commissioned by NHS England and produced by Shared Lives in association with TLAP.

It takes a look at ideas and practices that are well established in social care and community development circles, but less well known in the health sector and NHS commissioning.

What co-production means to me

“We are now beginning to understand that we need to be involved from the start in all the discussions and decision making, we need to take some of the responsibility if it is possible”.

Another blog to flag is this one from Sally Percival, who is Co-chair of the TLAP National Co-production Advisory Group (NCAG). She has written a thought provoking piece about co-production and how it has had a positive impact on her life.
