The Solihull Together Board has agreed a set of innovative priorities for 2018/19 which recognise the importance of aligning health and care priorities with wider opportunities to improve the lives of Solihull residents through developments associated with inclusive economic growth, transport, housing and sport. There will also be an explicit focus on mental health.
Priorities will be delivered through the Solihull Together programme. Some are existing Solihull Together workstreams while others are new to the programme and still at early stages of development.
- SupportUHome - existing workstream
- OPAL Solihull and Solihull Community Gateway (Integrated Decision Hub) - existing workstream
- Active Communities. This is a Sport England Local Delivery pilot and a Birmingham and Solihull collaboration. The aim is to reduce physical inactivity by taking a whole system approach. The pilot in north Solihull and east Birmingham will focus on working with communities to develop local opportunities to reduce inactivity and remove barriers to people becoming more active. Project manager: Nick Garnett, Public Health, Solihull Council
- 0-25s. This new workstream will inform the development of an integrated strategic commissioning plan for children and young people’s services. It will involve schools, Public Health, NHS and social care. It will include a focus on children and young people with autism and the development of the local offer for care leavers in Solihull. Project lead: Sally Hodges, Director of Children’s Services, Solihull Council
