Homecare redesign to Keep it Local – Locality working with Bristol City Council & Power to Change
Posted on 11th March, 2020
Bristol City Council is working in partnership with Locality and Power to Change on the re-design of its homecare model.
Keep it Local Network
This work is part of the Keep it Local campaign, for councils moving away from bureaucratic commissioning and big outsourcing contracts. Instead they are unlocking the power of community: building strong local partnerships, sharing power and maximising local strengths.
In March 2020 the first 11 trailblazer councils were announced. Locality, who is working on this campaign in partnership with the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales, is calling on other councils to join the Keep it Local Network.
They can do this by endorsing the Keep it Local principles, appointing champions, convening a discussion with the local community and working with Locality to assess and improve practice.
Through the Keep it Local campaign, Locality is working in two pilot areas supported by Lloyds Bank Foundation and Power to Change – Bristol and Bradford – to work through practical challenges and feed learning back into the wider network.
