This guide is addressed to people who champion person- and community-centred approaches in health and social care. It is part of the NHS England-funded Realising the Value programme led by Nesta and the Health Foundation, which seeks to develop person- and community-centred approaches for health and wellbeing. Two main contents are included in the guide: a framework for understanding and changing behaviour, and real-world examples of how these changes happen in practice.
Change is more likely to spread when both statutory organisations and community-based organisations align approaches. For this reason the guide feature case studies from both parts of the system.  They are colour coded to enable different audiences to navigate the guide easily.
