ABC has been asked to support the development of the Neighbourhood approach in Surrey and Sussex. This forms the next phase of implementation of recommendations from the Fuller Stocktake report.
We’ve hosted a series of workshops designed to bring together local residents and community partners who collectively wish to improve the health and wellbeing of local people, and the delivery of local NHS services.
The events give people the opportunity to:
- Meet with other local people and organisations who are creating health in their area
- Celebrate all that is going on within the local community
- Take stock of how relationships between local people, local organisations and the NHS are changing and developing
- Reflect on local experience of NHS services
- Shape a collective vision to build upon the above

Living Well in Crawley Workshops
Two workshops have now taken place, helping us to understand the barriers faced by individuals living with long-term conditions. The sessions mapped what is already strong in Crawley and explored how we can build upon existing provision to support people to live well as long as possible, informed by those with lived experience or organisations that support them. Feedback has been shared with workshop attendees and we are now working with community providers, general practice and voluntary organisations to design how we can build on all of the assets we already have to deliver this for Crawley.
