Public bodies are charged with meeting people’s needs – but the level of need is typically decided by factors well outside their control. And while the value of preventive work is widely recognised in some fields – between healthcare, social care and public health providers, for example, and between police, probation and social services – the level of collaboration between public bodies operating in a particular geographical footprint varies widely across the country.

At this session, the expert panel will consider how today’s policy environment and emerging technologies could support stronger preventive work and strategic collaboration at the local level, helping to address social and economic problems at source.

The session will look at:

  • The challenges to putting early intervention programmes in place
  • Lessons from where collaboration has worked – and hasn’t
  • The support that central government would need to provide to unlock prevention
  • How local organisations can work together on the ground to better map need in their areas
