The Active and Independent Living Programme (AILP) will support allied health professionals (AHPs), working in partnership with fellow health and social care staff, to deliver key elements of the Health and Social Care Delivery Plan and other national policies, such as Transforming Primary Care and the integration of health and social care. It sets out the broad strategic direction for the programme, including the six overarching ambitions, to drive significant culture change in how people can access and receive AHP support for self-management, prevention, early intervention, rehabilitation and enablement services.
An improvement programme within AILP will drive this agenda by delivering improvements in support for people to manage their wellbeing, live active and independent lives, become or remain economically active and participate in their local communities. Priority areas will be identified over the course of the programme to ensure alignment with national policy and local developments. An action plan setting out the key deliverables and improvement programme will be published in each year of the programme.
This document provides a framework to describe and further engage the AHP contribution to developing new approaches to active and independent living.
