The Building Health Partnerships: Self-care programme will provide funded support to enable Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) footprints to engage with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector and citizens on wellbeing and self-care priorities.
Jointly funded by NHS England and the Big Lottery Fund and delivered in partnership by Social Enterprise UK and the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) the programme will run from April 2017 to June 2018.
The BHP: Self-care programme takes a dual focus combining relationship building with agreeing and implementing joint action. STP areas in the programme will be able to access a mixture of facilitated support, expert input, links to other networks and initiatives and communications expertise.
The programme is intended to support STPs to more effectively engage with all the providers and people necessary to meet their plan objectives – in line with the Five Year Forward View.
Eight STP areas have been selected to take part in the programme:
Previously SEUK and IVAR have delivered the BHP programme with 22 areas at a local authority and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) level. For details on this previous work please click here.
Two STP footprints, Northumberland Tyne and Wear and North Durham + Durham, Darlington Tees, Hambleton, Richmond and Whitby, will be working together in the Building Health Partnerships: Self-Care programme to involve VCSE and citizens in delivering on their self-care priorities.Read more
