2023 Case Studies Pack
- October 2023
The Royal Borough of Greenwich (RBG) wanted to transform their learning disabilities day opportunities through a collaborative design process, with a particular interest in moving away from building-based services to community-level solutions. Ideas Alliance spent nine months supporting collaboration and innovation between the council, people with learning disabilities and their families, providers and supporters to kickstart change and action in the borough.
This started with a scoping phase, where we learnt more about people’s needs and desires, which then led into a 100 Day Challenge. A 100 Day Challenge is a rapid-results, action-based way of collaborative working which puts the people with the most knowledge about a problem in charge of the solutions. However, the ongoing disruption and challenges of COVID meant that this time, the project had to be almost entirely delivered online. The scope of the work in Greenwich also meant that we needed to run an expanded version – with three teams working in parallel tackling slightly different aspects of the problem, including one team led by people with learning disabilities.
