Scaling-up evidence of community-led health

Those who work in community-led health know it is an effective approach to tackle health inequalities at a local level.  Moreover, many community-led health organisations conduct regular and effective evaluation of their work.  But, unless this evidence can be systematically gathered, organised and presented, there is a high likelihood that some national and local policy makers will remain sceptical and apprehensive about long term investment in such approaches and prioritising resources in this area.

 

CHEX has drafted a paper around scaling up the full impact of community-led work across the country that outlines the potential to compile and present the evidence to decision-makers.  However, we need to know if there is a need or an appetite from community-led organisations to participate in such a programme.  To this end we would very much welcome your feedback and ideas on the merit of such a programme.  

 

Click here to download the paper.  If you would like to contribute to its development, please respond with your feedback before Friday 28th September.  Email your comments to andrew@scdc.org.uk.  You may find the questions at the end of the paper a helpful starting point.
