Building Health Partnerships: Nottingham Case Study
Health and Employment
This is a case study of the Building Health Partnerships programme in Nottingham, where the partnership decided to focus on strengthening the link between health and employment support. Despite the overall number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance falling in Nottingham, the total long-term unemployed claiming Employment Support Allowance remained high.
The Building Health Partnerships Programme aims to improve health outcomes through supporting the development of effective partnerships between Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), local authorities and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. Supported by NHS England this programme is delivered by Social Enterprise UK and the Institute for Voluntary Action Research.
