This graphic summary shares the major lessons and messages from the Evidence & Learning Briefing papers published May 2020. What we know, from examining data from across the Community Led Support (CLS) sites, is that CLS is making a difference in a variety of ways as it is implemented locally but that there are still some common patterns and themes:
1. CLS is about people and places
The Programme has dramatically increased from 11 to 27 diverse areas across Scotland, England and Wales. A common feature is their focus on achieving change in public
services based on a better understanding of each place, and a stronger relationship with local people.
2. Significant shifts & sustained change:
3. Context is everything
CLS depends on knowing what does and doesn’t work in each place, who the local players are across the system and in communities, and how best to work with them.
4. CLS changes need radically different leaders and leadership
that is dispersed, bold and pays asmuch attention to behaviour and culture change as it does to system and structural changes demanded through CLS.
5. Embracing evidence and using learning
from insights and data is crucial for fostering a culture of learning and strategic thinking which is central to the success of CLS.
