Background

A participatory action research project in seven Big Local areas to understand and develop partnership working between residents and public health agencies. The research built on our previous work on resident led change as five year learning partner to Big Local and on our Building Health Partnerships and Health and Social Value Programmes. We published the findings from the research in December 2016.

What type of project is it?

Action research

 

The brief – What is the purpose of the work?

Local Trust commissioned this research because health and wellbeing had been identified as a priority in many Big Local areas; and because the areas that were already working with health agencies said that this relationship was both rewarding and challenging.

  • Identified some of the ways in which Big Local partnerships are contributing to local health and wellbeing agendas
  • Provided insights into the factors that contribute to opening doors to building relationships with health agencies

 

Research design – What methods will be used?

Focus group discussions; facilitated meetings; advice, information, resources and ideas

 

What are the key stages?

  • Published in January 2017
  • IVAR will be running sessions on the research findings at the Big Local Spring Events 2017
