These areas will bring different organisations and services together to offer them one co-ordinated support service that meets all their needs. In each of the 12 areas, people with multiple needs are central to the plans – their development and delivery.
As well as helping thousands of individuals, the funding will give organisations the chance to showcase and evidence more effective and efficient was for designing, commissioning and delivering support services for this group in the future.
