Working for caring places and healthy communities
Unleashing creativity through self-managed teams
4 weeks until our #CaringPlaces21 festival!
Our ‘Caring Places – Building Healthy Communities’ festival is creating a buzz and we’d love you to be there too.
Head over to our festival website for the full agenda, speaker profiles and to register!
We bring the Buurtzorg model to Britain and Ireland, helping purpose-driven organisations produce great outcomes and enriched jobs in sustainable ways through self-managed teams.
Buurtzorg is Dutch for ‘Neighbourhood Care’ and has grown from a 2007 nurse-led start-up to providing excellent support to nearly 100,000 people today.
The results include top marks from the Dutch care inspectorate and winning the country’s Employer of the Year award six times, while reducing costs.
In partnership with our Dutch colleagues, we have supported change in more than 30 organisations in Britain and Ireland, spanning the NHS, local government, social enterprises and charities.
With promising results in health and social care, we now offer our services to leaders and professionals in other community-based settings too, including housing, children’s services and education.
To arrange a no obligation, initial chat about how we could help you, please contact us.
