Community-led care and support: a new paradigm

The aim of the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) roundtable discussion in February 2015 was to identify, celebrate, support and learn from community-led activity.

They aimed to identify practical steps stakeholders can take to support community-led services and share that knowledge with the sector including policy-makers.

This report is based on that workshop and concludes that statutory services need to rethink their role and focus on commissioning outcomes, rather than protecting the traditional system.
