Collective Action for Communities

Localities are considered as a community of interest used for the purposes of localising place-based care.

The locality is intended to drive a focus on equity and priority populations based on the identified needs and priorities of that community.

Collective action with communities creates a major opportunity to foster integration of care models and services to ensure people have greater choice over the services they access. It also provides a platform for health and wellbeing networks to be in the driving seat of design and implementation of localised initiatives.

It is vital that those with lived experiences within a community are part of the network and are provided with a platform to be heard. Networks or localities are supported through a Collective Action Framework that creates an approach to creating a shared vision or common agenda. A natural extension of the HCH MoC is the shift to the creation of a network of services to support whānau and community.
