The events will be exactly the same so you only need to come to one.

Register for 19 September

In July 2019 we held Briefings across Edinburgh’s four localities to introduce the 3 Conversations approach to our local voluntary and community sectors. Over seventy organisations participated in these events.
We have a first update: The Three Conversations approach and first innovation site.
This page is to be used to keep colleagues up to date with developments and provide a platform for further dialogue as the roll out begins. Please check back regularly.
Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership has recently begun work on the development of the Three Conversations model – which it is anticipated will reshape the way care and support are delivered across the city.
The new way of working will first be delivered at a number of ‘Innovation Sites’ across the city, which will allow teams to begin to redesign the way they work with people and move away from some of the current systems which are often flagged as bureaucratic, risk averse and admin heavy.
Clearly, to be successful this work will need to embed the widest range of community activities, groups, faith groups, Community Councils and citizens to support the design process and we are clear that this needs to happen at the beginning so that you are built in with the bricks of the programme.
EVOC will be supporting the development of work in the community following the Community Led Support methodology and we are starting to explore how that will work in reality. We will provide a briefing ahead of the event to people registered below.
Our intention is to ensure that the organisations and groups which make up communities can be facilitated to take a leading role in the development of the new initiative.
To begin this development, we will be hosting an event for local community based organisations, faith groups, Community Councils and other community groups on 23rd July 2019, 1pm – 4pm.
Please book a place at:
Briefing for voluntary organisations on the new 3 Conversations Model (Partners 4 Change) being adopted by Edinburgh Health & Social Care Partnership.
EVOC has been attending the steering group meetings to implement the new model and this event is a brief powerpoint discussion about what is happening and how practice for the Partnership will significantly change in the coming months.
