City-wide strategy What you model in a setting can be replicated across an area/region You must build capacity in areas/ settings – use a trainer/practioner model Establish a management group that can make decisions representative of all agencies. Think the big picture – deliver through the small things Use data to target effectively – work in hot spots – build around the most effective /sympathetic hub Leadership needs to model the behaviours – early leadership training is important.
