Six partnerships are participating in phase one of Healthy communities together. Each partnership includes voluntary organisations, NHS organisations and local authorities. In phase one, lasting nine months from February 2021, they will develop plans and test approaches. They will implement these in phase two, aiming to transform the way communities, voluntary organisations, the NHS and local authorities work together in their area. Phase two will last for three years from 2022 to 2024.
Grants from TNLCF will enable each place to develop capacity for working together and support community organisations’ participation. In addition, The King’s Fund will provide sustained support to partnerships throughout the Healthy communities together programme, helping and challenging them to work together in new ways and to foster stronger relationships.
As the programme progresses, The King’s Fund and TNLCF will also work with the Healthy communities together partnerships to identify and disseminate learning from their experience.
You can find out more about the partnerships involved on The King’s Fund website.
