Health Advocacy - saves money, changes lives

We are excited to share this learning from our recent Health Advocacy project. This reflective evaluation follows a formal evaluation and cost benefit analysis submitted to funders (South & East Leeds CCG) at the end of the project.

Drawing on evidence generated through the evaluation and staff reflection we have produced a learning and good practice guide for those wishing to learn about delivering equitable services to Gypsies and Travellers. We hope this helps practitioners and services think through models of delivery and demonstrates the effectiveness of advocacy provision with marginalised communities. 

The learning includes reflections on our model of Roads, Bridges and Tunnels to describe service access and the importance and efficacy of taking an asset based approach to delivery.
