    element in the Governments vision for adult
    social care, Capable Communities and Active

    - Building Stronger Communities
  • Sector-led partnership Think Local Act Personal

Think Local Act Personal
  • People and communities will play a bigger role in
    supporting themselves and others
  • Focus on prevention joint working, make the
    most of universal services, invest in community
  • Change in workforce culture and practices
    support should promote greater community

TLAP Building Community Capacity project(led by
Catherine Wilton)
  • Exploring initiatives that aim to provide support
    and facilitate the contribution of older and
    disabled people while reducing demand for
    intensive targeted services
  • Gathering evidence of impact and cost
    effectiveness of interventions
  • Reviewing effective low cost approaches to

Case studies of types of intervention
  • Place shaping and commissioning
  • Community development, community navigating,
    promoting connections within neighbourhoods
  • Personalised service provision and innovation in
    primary prevention universal services
  • Time-banks, encouraging participation,
  • Self-directed support and personal budgets

The economic case
  • Professor Martin Knapp and colleagues at LSE
    researching interventions for community capacity
    building - the economic case for investment

Early research
  • Cost per time bank member averages less than 450
    per year but could result in savings and other
    economic pay-offs of more than 1300 per member
  • Befriending costs are typically about 80 per
    older person but savings could be c.35 in the
    first year alone because of reduced need for
    treatment and support for mental health needs

Early research
  • Cost of community navigators - less than 300 per
    person but economic benefits - less time lost at
    work, savings in benefits payments and fewer GP
    visits could be 900 per person in the first year

Practical products
  • Does it Work? A guide to evaluating community
    capacity projects
  • Are we there yet? A checklist and planning tool
    for building community connections

Building Capacity - need for a new model?
  • The role of passive recipient is well embedded
  • Challenges of adult social care impact widely
  • In the interest of corporate local authority and
    partners to act together
  • But disincentives to do so, cultural inhibitions
    and need for more effective approaches

Community Fund Holding
  • is a budgeting model which further refines the
    devolved decision making approaches that some
    have already been adopting
  • builds on our learning from self directed support
    and seeks to share power and resources in a way
    that enables commissioners and communities to
    recognise and act on their shared interests
  • is designed to allow each party to understand its
    role in a new relationship and to bring their own
    unique contribution
