Think Local Act Personal
What is Think Local Act Personal?
Think local act personal are a national partnership of more than 50 organisations committed to transforming health and care through personalisation and community-based support.
The partnership spans central and local government, social care providers, the NHS, and the voluntary and community sector as well as people with lived experience, through the National Co-production Advisory Group (NCAG).
The work is coordinated by a small core team. Policy advisors are responsible for producing resources from different partnership members around the themes of commissioning, self-directed support, and community-centred approaches. This puts us in the unique position of bringing together people who use services and carers with national organisations.
TLAP is hosted by partner organisation Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE)
