Client - A Knowledge Transfer Partnership with HCCT, London 2012-2014
There is a need to develop alternative models and ways of delivering health and social care public services to respond to both growing needs and spending cuts. This project will explore the needs and expectations of mental health service users and the different opportunities coming from commissioners and other funders. This will feed into the development of alternative strategies based on training provision, work integration social enterprise, volunteering and time banking. The different approaches of coproduction involving end users in the design and delivery of services will also be explored. The evaluation of such programmes will identify where and how social enterprise can enable alternative forms of provision.
