The Collaborative Projects are regional structures that facilitate service reform and improve service cooperation and coordination at a regional level.
The projects engage with services that support frail older people and their carers.
The work completed by the projects will lead to improved quality of life outcomes for the target group, including independence and participation in their communities of choice through a partnership approach with all stakeholders.
Below are the strategic aims of the Collaborative Projects:
