What we do

We support public and private sector organisations understand and develop a Buurtzorg inspired model, supporting teams and helping to create the wider infrastructure they need to thrive.

Our core package is a proven four step process that helps you to understand the Buurtzorg model and supports you on your journey to applying its principles to the service for which you are responsible. The four steps are:

The Buurtzorg Delivery Model

Inspiration

Providing you with a good initial understanding of the model.

Deep dive into
Buurtzorg

A three-step programme containing:
a. Principles & Practice: giving you a detailed understanding of the model
b. Study visit: see the model in operation in The Netherlands
c. Making it happen: creating a plan for your specific situation, working with test and learn teams of frontline caregivers to learn self-management and shape the organisational changes they need for success.

Test and Learn

A small-scale implementation to find local solutions to local stumbling blocks and to support change management and engagement, back office redesign, leadership development, IT solutions and business modelling.

Scaling up

Supporting you in creating new teams and continuing organisational transformation to support them well and reduce overheads.
