Direct Support for Local Sites

Local sites can buy in a variety of direct support and consultation options from the National i-THRIVE Programme Team to support their implementation of the THRIVE Framework for system change (Wolpert et al., 2019).

Each package of support is discussed and agreed in collaboration with the site and is bespoke to the needs and strengths of the local area.

Examples of the most common packages of support to local sites include:

1. One off engagement event

The National i-THRIVE Programme can facilitate a cross-sector engagement event to ensure local understanding of the THRIVE Framework and its key principles and to identify good THRIVE-like practice already happening and any gaps in provision. Together with the local site, an agreement will be made on priorities to take forward and to support the creation of an action plan. This is often a large event, with up to 120 cross-sector professionals in attendance.

Cost:

0.5 x day rate of National i-THRIVE Programme team at £950, preparation and pre-meeting time

1 x day rate of National i-THRIVE Programme team at £1,900, travel expenses in addition

Total: £2,850 plus travel expenses

Who to invite:
As a guide, sites have found it important to have representation from across the system. This tends to include universal and specialist health and mental health services (including GP representation, perinatal services, and adult mental health), social care and safeguarding, local authority services (including youth justice, early help, LAC etc), education (including children’s centres, primary, secondary and specialist provision including for those NEET), commissioners, the police, the ambulance service, a whole range of voluntary sector providers, and appropriate representation of service users (children and young people representatives and/or parents/carers).


2. Series of events

Building on the initial engagement event, this package includes additional follow up events at the six month and twelve month mark (as a minimum) to review progress made. The National i-THRIVE Programme acts as a ‘critical friend’ throughout the process to support fidelity to the THRIVE Framework and its key principles and to agree local definitions of the five needs based groups.

Cost:

3 x day rate of National i-THRIVE Programme team at £1,900, travel expenses in addition

3 x 0.5 day rate of National i-THRIVE Programme team at £950, planning and liaison with site via phone

Total: £8,550 plus travel expenses


3. National i-THRIVE Community of Practice

The National i-THRIVE Community of Practice is a valued forum to share knowledge and expertise in implementing the THRIVE Framework, disseminating new learning, and in harnessing collective action through collaborative practice across sites.

Membership of the National i-THRIVE Community of Practice includes the opportunity for cross sector representatives to attend a bi-annual shared learning events, monthly newsletters, opportunity for creation of a local implementation story and consultation and/or coaching opportunities with the National i-THRIVE Programme team.
