This project is part of the Health Foundation’s Scaling Up Improvement programme. The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.
In this project the core set of THRIVE Framework principles were translated into a model of care across four localities in NELFT CAMHS teams; Barking and Dagenham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Havering. Implementation was achieved using the evidence-based approach to implementation set out by the National i-THRIVE Programme. This project was completed in September 2018, with a full evaluation completed in June 2019.
The project established what worked well with regards to scaling up i-THRIVE across four localities and what the barriers to disseminating the model of care were. It also determined whether the expected benefits of implementing the THRIVE Framework could be translated to different CAMHS services and its cost effectiveness.
The final report, including the full evaluation will be released soon.
This project was delivered in partnership with the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and North East London Foundation Trust. The University of Roehampton undertook the project evaluation.
