What they aim to achieve
Starting from the premise that people who are defined as ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ are extremely valuable citizens with skills, knowledge, experience and other qualities to offer, to co-produce with people solutions to help them maintain, and hopefully improve, their health and well-being in ways that suit them.
What they do
Hold in-depth conversations with a wide diversity of people about what they see as most important for their health and well-being.
Develop and test ideas with people that address the key themes that they have identified, and then co-produce innovative solutions with them.
