Neighbourhood Resilience Programme
The Neighbourhood Resilience Programme (NRP) was implemented in nine neighbourhoods in NW England between 2016 and 2019. It aimed to test a systems approach to enhancing collective capacities for local action on social and health inequalities.
To do this it sought to:
- shift local power dynamics so that local residents were equal partners in decisions and actions affecting their neighbourhoods and lives, alongside staff from third, public and private sector agencies. The Community Research and Engagement Network (COREN) was key to achieving this.
- support everybody living and working in the neighbourhoods and the organisations operating there to work together to improve the social determinants of health inequalities that are amenable to local action.
There was no new investment: the focus was on improving/redesigning existing services/activities informed by diverse evidence. More information on how the programme developed in each neighbourhood is provided in case studies and findings from an evaluation of the impacts are provided here.
