Abstract

This report focuses on how national bodies can best remove barriers to progressing person- and community-centred approaches for health and wellbeing.

Key findings for policymakers and national system leaders:
  1. National bodies should focus on people as well as systems.
  2. National policies must be coordinated.
  3. National initiatives have potential but how they are implemented is central to their success.
  4. A thriving and sustainable voluntary and community sector is essential.
  5. A coherent measurement framework can help unlock barriers to person- and community-centred approaches for health and wellbeing.
  6. National bodies could do more to ensure co-production is embedded at all levels of the system.
