A new report 'Managing Demand: Building Future Public Services', published by the RSA in partnership with the Local Government Association (LGA), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), iMPOWER and Collaborate has cited Turning Point's Connected Care model as an example of good practice.

The report argues that "most politicians and executives are aware that current local authority strategies aimed at reducing services or achieving greater efficiencies are not a long-term answer to the demands of an ageing society or the challenge of public sector austerity."

"The report sets out approaches that local authorities can take to effect a fundamental cultural shift that would see Councils at the heart of localities in which everyone plays a role and services and outcomes are shaped by active, independent and resilient citizens."

In the report Turning Point's Connected Care model is described as 'Building Community Resilience' through engaging the community in co-designing and commissioning services.
