The programme aims to increase the third sector’s capacity to contribute to health and social care integration.

Our programme uses a variety of methods to support the third sector’s ability to influence the direction of health and social care integration in Scotland. As a team, we use our platform to promote and champion the role of the third sector. We also play a role in ensuring that the voice of lived experience is able to influence the design and delivery of integrated services.

As well as this, we collate intelligence around the successful implementation of integration in Scotland, identifying and sharing examples of good practice.

Some recent highlights of the Integration Support team’s activities include our partnership work in the Scottish Borders in which we have supported the third sector to engage with their statutory partners within the local Health and Social Care Partnership and our Engagement Insights report which highlights the key aspects of meaningful engagement.
