Tackling inequalities through partnership working: the development of a neighbourhood project

  • Sarah Lockyer (a1) and Jane South (a2)
Abstract

The focus of this paper is on health inequalities at a local level and the implications for community-based practice. This paper describes the development of a small multiagency project supporting families in a disadvantaged urban neighbourhood within the UK. A baseline assessment enabled primary and secondary data to be collected to inform project development and identify priorities for action. Findings revealed the scale of health need and helped focus the direction of the project. Several issues affecting implementation were identified, including the importance of good liaison between services and adopting a community development approach. This paper discusses the wider implications for the planning, delivery and evaluation of community-based initiatives addressing health inequalities. Despite the scale of need, there appears to be good potential for practitioners working in disadvantaged neighbourhoods to achieve some positive changes. Key points of learning are identified.
