Consultation - Collective Force for Health and Wellbeing: Refreshed Action Plan
I am pleased to present this draft action plan for your review, on behalf of the Scottish Library and Information Council, the ALLIANCE, the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre, and the Scottish Government Self Management and Health Literacy team.
We would appreciate your feedback by 23 August to email@example.com . This timescale will enable us to finalise the action plan and initiate delivery in the autumn of this year.
The plan sets out how libraries in local authorities, schools and other sectors will work with partners in health and social care and the third sector to become central hubs for trusted health and wellbeing information in their communities. In this role they will act as key facilitators in helping people to emerge from COVID as partners and leaders in their own health and wellbeing.
Why your feedback is important
We would value your input to the shared priorities across our organisations set out in this plan. These include:
- Enabling people to use digital health information tools and services, building digital, information and health literacy, and maximising digital inclusion.
- Using information services to support mental health and wellbeing, including among young people and the elderly.
- Reaching and empowering groups at risk of exclusion from health and care services.
Key areas for feedback
The draft plan sets out proposed activities for the next two years which can be delivered within existing resource. We would particularly value your feedback on:
- Vision, Focus and Objectives (sections 1-3 respectively)
- Outcomes and Impact (section 7)
- Potential for your organisation to collaborate with library services to support shared aims outlined in this action plan.
- Your thoughts on priorities for development beyond the two year mark
