Approach October: Provide HWBs with a draft framework for strategy and activity to build social capital, linking to examples and evidence Oct-April: Support an exemplar group of HWBs to use the draft framework/its elements in developing and implementing local plans Work in synergy with other initiatives and offers (LGA, regional networks etc.)
Approach Share developing learning via web- resources, regional HWB and personalisation networks, work with Public Health England April Finalise and disseminate framework via DH (Active Communities Development Group), LGA etc. 2014/5 subject to resources phase 2: further delivery support via regional networks and programmes
Work with Exemplars Recruit 6-12 HWBs (by October) Local facilitated and co-productive review and planning session using framework and TLAP tools in context of local HWB strategy Local use of agreed level of consultancy support based on initial plan Evidence support via LSE Facilitate peer support Web-based forum for exchange and good practice Work in other TLAP and partner offers Regional elements?
Expectations Exemplar HWBs will sign up at cross agency senior level to use the framework co-productively and incorporate elements into local strategy HWBs will cover local costs (venues etc.) Action agreed at planning session will take place October-April Outcomes and activity reported into programme by April 2014
The draft framework Developed by Clive Miller and Catherine Wilton

Key contents Section 1: Making the case for a strengths and assets based approach to boosting Health and Well Being A.Explaining – the asset based approach to community development and the strengths based approach to effective coproductive service redesign B.The evidence – improvements in health and well being and consequent savings from investment C.Key policy drivers and initiatives – to enable the new approach including: the care and Support Bill; TLAPs Making It Real; the National Collaboration for Integrated Care and Support.
Section 2: What Health and Wellbeing Boards can do A. Focus on both assets and needs – e.g. use of bottom up community asset mapping processes to inform JSNAs. B. Provide community and cross-sector leadership - to challenge and change current practice within their own sectors and work across sectors. C. Promoting a vision and shaping the strategy – using Making It Reals I statements; building the strengths and assets approach into all aspect of the core agenda of the HWB. D. Shape priorities around building stronger communities and maximising co-production – the priority criteria HWBs might use to decide when, where and in what to invest to enable the new approach. E. Co-ordinate cross-sector investment – and invest in portfolios of approaches that both deliver the improved outcomes and net out gains across sectors. F. Evaluate and share the learning – in terms of improved outcomes and lived experience; culture change and savings
