Public Agencies bring “technical inputs” , alongside Social Networks and Community groups who bring “cultural inputs”. Through a process of shared learning and knowledge transfers, including nominating representatives onto Partnership Boards to drive policy innovation, services are designed and delivered in community organisations – “Provider Sites”.
Communities would find it much easier to access services closer to home, at places that are more convenient to them and their cultural-social needs. It will also enable the redesign of new pathways into mainstream and acute services. Through shared learning and knowledge transfer, Provider Sites develop the potential to become Social Enterprises in their own right.
