Our Place Guide to Redesigning Services at the Neighbourhood Level

Public services are undergoing a period of significant transformation.

In order to address the current and future challenges in our communities, we need to find more effective ways to deliver services including new approaches which prevent problems, and reduce future demand on services. From community budgets, to participatory budgets, to shared decision making in patient care, evidence suggests that services which are better aligned with the needs and wants of local people run more efficiently and cost effectively.

This guide will highlight evidence from local authorities, community organisations and Our Place areas, that demonstrates why some people believe that the key to meeting future challenges will be ensuring user focused services that leverage not just a joined up public sector, but also local VCS organisations and the community itself.
