Who is involved?
Locality Partnerships are made up of local health, social care, and the voluntary sector – with citizens and community as equal partners.
This can include GPs, councils, social care, community services, mental health support and local activity clubs. People with lived experience, their support networks and carers are also partners in each Locality Partnership.
Together they work as one team to understand what matters most to their local community. They then share their expertise, experiences, and knowledge to improve services for their population and ensure people are at the heart of every decision.
What does this mean for me?
In time, Locality Partnerships will ensure everyone’s care is person centred, proactive and place-based. This means the support you need is personalised to your needs, considers the bigger picture of the wider factors that impact health and wellbeing and is closer to home.
