Abstract

The report sets out ten key actions on what should be done and how people need to work differently to put people and communities at the heart of health and wellbeing.  

ow people need to work differently:

  • Enable health and care professionals and the wider workforce to understand and work in person- and community-centred ways.
  • Develop strong and sustained networks as an integral part of implementing and scaling up person- and community-centred approaches.
  • Value the role of people and communities in their health and wellbeing, including through co-production, volunteering and social movements for health.
  • Make greater use of behavioural insights in implementing person- and community-centred approaches and spreading change. 
  • Support a thriving and sustainable voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, working alongside people, families, communities and the health and care system.
