Using Befriending evidence to inform commissioning in Fife
You are invited to a session to learn about how Fife Health and Social Care Partnership, Fife Voluntary Action and Partnership-funded befriending services have worked together over the past 3 years, through the Threading the Needle programme, to move towards evidence-informed commissioning.
Threading the Needle is a Scottish Government funded programme to support health and social care commissioners use third sector evidence to commission outcomes for health and social care.
You will hear how:
we developed From the Source to the Sea – a resource which illustrates the theory of change behind befriending and how such services can help Fife Partnership address its priorities and the nine national health and wellbeing outcomes
we revised Service Level Agreements and reporting templates to make them outcome focused.
self-evaluation evidence collected by befriending services has been gathered and shared and how we plan to use it to inform commissioning
