    • 3. Why are we doing this?
      • Studies show that children of parents who misuse alcohol are at a higher risk of mental ill-health, behavioural problems, police involvement, and alcohol / substance misuse
      • The annual cost related to alcohol misuse in the Blackburn area is £33m
      • 17.6% of BwD 16+ population drink at hazardous levels (18,090 people)
      • 5.5% drink at harmful levels (5,653 people)
    • 4. Why are we doing this?
      • Looking for ways to improve strategic objectives:
        • Reduce alcohol-harm related hospital admissions (NI 39)
        • Reduce the all age, all cause mortality rate (NI 120)
        • Reduce the mortality rate from all circulatory diseases for citizens under 75 (NI 121)
        • improving the health, well-being and development of children across Blackburn with Darwen.
      •   Looking for ways to work smarter & in partnership
        • Identify efficiency savings and improve effectiveness of public sector resources
    • 5. The approach we have taken
      • Phased approach (with review at end of phase)
        • Phase 1: Understand the current situation of services, front line staff opinion and customer opinion to identify areas to improve.
        • Phase 2: Develop conceptual models of potential improvements.
        • Phase 3: Develop improvement plan with costings
      • Involve stakeholders
      • Be practical and pragmatic
      • Produce useful product
    • 6. Phase 1 - activity
      • Customer definition workshop
      • Service provider interviews
      • Customer engagement workshops
      • Challenge workshops
      • Costing research
      • Interim improvement report
    • 7. Phase 1 - findings
      • Alcohol was only part of a complex picture.
      • Treating the symptoms didn’t necessarily remove the cause
      • Once misuse starts it is costly and difficult to stop
      • There is a knock on affect to other members of the family

    • 9. Phase 1 - conclusions
      • More effort needs to be put into prevention and earlier intervention
        • More brief interventions
        • More early referrals
        • More big society type action
        • More holistic family support
      • Decided to move the project into a Think family context to focus on prevention and earlier intervention.
    • 10. Phase 2 - Concept
      • Family Service Planner
        • Organise services such that they can be easily identified by a lead professional (and any front line worker)
        • Aim to include all ‘services’ across the place
        • Group costs to identify place based sharing opportunities
        • Develop a means to justify a family intervention
        • Develop a family service plan to be more holistic and encourage proactive referrals
    • 11. Family service planner
    • 12. Family Service Planner
    • 13. Phase 3 - Plans
      • Firm improvement plans
        • This will be planned after a review of phase 2 but intention is to present options to senior management that will deliver the objectives given at the start.
    • 14. The outcomes to achieve
      • Cultural shift in being more customer and partnership focused
      • Efficiency savings and more effective services by working better as a public sector
      • Reduction in higher levels because of level 1 and 2 interventions
      • Sustainable change with more community involvement
      • Improvement in the strategic objectives for the longer term
    • 15. Lessons learned
      • This is ‘hard to justify’ work and needs driving forward
      • There are too many stakeholders to get on board but worth giving everyone the opportunity to speak
      • There are a lot of services available but they aren’t always cohesive in meeting customer need
      • Need to define useful SMART products and tools not more theory
      • Having a private sector PARTNER helps
    • 16. Things to share
      • Findings & Improvement Report
      • Family service planner concept
      • Final improvement plan
    • 17. Thank you for listening Any questions?
