Community Led Support

The Community Led Support (CLS) programme in South Ayrshire is seeking to:

  • Be a catalyst to supporting ‘personalised outcomes’ and ‘effective conversations’ to be at the heart of transformational change in the HSCP and to embed these into staff and partner approaches to working
  • Develop more efficient and effective ways of dealing with demand for social work and community health services utilising broader family and community assets and supports
  • Develop more effective triaging and re-direction of potential users at first and subsequent points of contact
  • Ultimately, develop more local and bespoke service models where local demand is matched to local supply (statutory, voluntary or community)

The HSCP is working in partnership with the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) who are providing expert external facilitation.

It is one of 3 Scottish sites (with about 12 sites across the UK) the other being Scottish Borders and East Renfrewshire and the Scottish sites are also being supported by Scottish Government through the ihub.
