PIF is supporting an upcoming virtual conference on Community-led and person-centred approaches to health and wellbeing.

The conference is being hosted by PIF member The King's Fund.

It aims to raise awareness about the power of community-led and person-centred approaches.

Delegates will gain an understanding of how the health and care system can invest in, and work with, communities to improve people’s health and wellbeing. 

Sessions will explore:  

  • The strengths of community-led and person-centred approaches in improving people’s health and wellbeing
  • Lessons learnt from the Grenfell tragedy and how services and the wider system must build trust and engage meaningfully with the communities they serve
  • Why funding and investing in voluntary, community and social enterprise groups (VCSEs) need to be improved so communities are better able to meet the needs of people
  • How integrated care systems (ICSs) can ensure working with communities is embedded at system level and delivered at place level through close partnership-working
  • How social prescribing can help tackle health inequalities at the local level and how to increase its reach
  • How communities and VCSEs can utilise their social and community assets to drive sustainable community-led activity.

There will also be an opportunity to network and make connections with others interested in community-led and person-centred approaches.

The conference takes place from 10-11 July and is hosted online.
