Why has the Sudbury area been chosen for the pilot?
Sudbury and its surrounding area were chosen as a focus as it has a number of ingredients which are judged more likely to be successful, such as:
- A new health centre opened in January 2015 which will support the co-location of teams
- Strong GP services
- Successful roll out of Social Care’s ‘Supporting Lives, Connecting Communities’ programme
- Sudbury has the most active voluntary and community sector in west Suffolk – with strong local leaders
- Sudbury police are very keen to support the project
