  • Thanks to NCVO
    Keen for us to share our experiences – many people will have attempted this in the past
    Quick introduction to the task force and then some thoughts on how it relates to commissioning, and the role of the voluntary sector
  • Formed 3 years ago
    Group of leaders from across the sectors (not just the voluntary sectory)
    Series of reports laying out the barriers and some solutions
    The Triple Dividend
    The Deciding Time
    Looking Forward to Later Life
    Towards Effective Prevention

  • Have produced a short document explaining how to classify early action spend.
    This is a really useful tool for getting people engaged in thinking it through
  • Public sector involvement – including in programmes which are funded from elsewhere
    Careful data analysis & measurement – possibly using skills brought in from outside, and developed with the LA
    Leadership – this can come from anywhere. Eg the police in Lancashire, the Sustainability Comissioner in Wales, the voluntary sector in Southwark or Coventry, or the LA.
    We have commissioned a literature review which isn’t yet published but I can certainly share a copy if you’re interested.
  • Southwark Early Action Commission
    Voluntary sector led
    Aims to engage statutory sector in coming up with recommendations for shifting action earlier
    Theirs is with the health and wellbeing board and focuses on the determinants of health
    Modelled on the Southwark Housing Commission
    Another interesting model is ‘Fairness Commissions’
    Public Social Partnerships
    A three-way partnership between a charity, independent funder, and statutory agency
    Used in Scotland
    Early Action Neighbourhood Fund
    led by some of the UK’s biggest funders
    A closed programme but there will be an open version next year
    Aims to change systems, structures, strategies and skills – using the voluntary sector as the catalyst.

    • 4. Primary prevention: Preventing or minimising the risk of problems arising, usually through universal policies like health promotion or a vaccination programme. Secondary prevention: Targeting individuals or groups at high risk or showing early signs of a particular problem to try to stop it occurring. For example Family Nurse Partnerships, screening programmes, or the Reading Recovery Programme. Tertiary prevention: Intervening once there is a problem, to stop it getting worse and redress the situation. For example work with ‘troubled families’ or to prevent reoffending. Acute spending: Spending which acts to manage the impact of a strongly negative situation but does little or nothing to prevent negative consequences or it reoccurring in future. For example prison, or acute hospital care. www.community-links.org/earlyaction
