Local Authorities struggle to report on the impacts of their investments as they rely largely on anecdotal evidence, and conversations between Sutton Council and The Culture Capital Exchange raised concerns over the effectiveness of the ‘Prevent, Reduce, Delay’ policy surrounding Adult Social Care.
In response to this, TCCE held the Health Sandpit to enable the Sutton Council to link up with academic partners who could assist with policy evaluation and evidencing effectiveness of their initiatives. The sandpit brought widely diverse voices and perspectives of academics, psychologists, designers, artists and community practitioners together to be heard, with the intention to cultivate new initiatives. TCCE identified funding opportunities from relevant trusts and foundations, and the exciting, impactful event lead to future research collaborations between TCCE members, Local Authorities and Voluntary Sector organisations.
