NHS Liverpool CCG ran a Community Investment Programme which supported local community, voluntary, faith and social enterprise organisations, targeting resources to tackle health inequalities and using an asset-based approach to improve health and wellbeing. 

The programme proved to be a very successful approach:-

Turning Tides demonstrates how the NHS can partner with communities to:-

  • address the social determinants of health
  • support people to improve wellbeing and
  • take more control of their health and lives
  • reduce demand on clinical services
  • foster preventive, community-led approaches to health and wellbeing
  • personalise care
  • develop meaningful engagement with communities and VCFSEs

The approach is strongly aligned with current national, regional and local strategies, addressing all of the One Liverpool Strategy Objectives:- well as NHS Long-Term Plan commitments:-

“The NHS will continue to commission, partner with and champion local charities, social enterprises and community interest companies providing services and support to vulnerable and at-risk groups. These organisations are often leading innovators in their field. Many provide a range of essential health, care and wellbeing services to groups that mainstream services struggle to reach.”

We will be holding conversations with VCFSE partners in the coming months to talk about working with the NHS in the future, if you’d like to be involved or have any queries about this work please contact Sarah Dewar, Social Value Lead:
