Leadership for Empowered and Healthy Communities EVENTS
This national programme, initiated by the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), will bring together senior leaders from across the country to explore how senior leaders can grow and nurture local social capital in order to build stronger communities and improve health and wellbeing.
The programme, which has been developed through a partnership between the National Skills Academy for Social Care, Skills for Care, NHS South of England (Central), the Think Local Act Personal Partnership and the Local Government Association's Ageing Well Programme, will help to shape the national debate around communities, co-production and public sector leadership.
Topics include: the business case for building stronger communities (for example, joining and participating in just one community group cuts your risk of dying in the next year by half); collaborative leadership and integrated approaches to tackling key issues of prevention; the 'asset' approach; commissioning for outcomes; communication and political awareness.
The programme is aimed at health and social care leaders in senior roles who want to be part of a movement for change and reform and who want to think radically about the challenges and opportunities in a community-based approach.
