Abstract

This evidence review was commissioned by Life Changes Trust to explore the evidence around the contribution of community-led approaches to social care and support to human rights and equalities outcomes.

The motivation for this review emerged from an awareness of a lack of understanding of the benefits of, and best practices in, person-centred and community-led social care. A better understanding of these benefits and their relationship to human rights and equalities concerns may serve to inform funding decisions for community-led person-centred interventions and programmes, resulting in increased outcomes for individuals and communities.
