Local Care Partnerships (LCPs) is the term used in Leeds to describe our model of joined-up working to deliver local care for local people; working in and with local communities.
Local Care Partnerships build on Leeds City Council’s strong history, NHS and third sector (community organisations) staff working together. There are 19 LCPs covering all of Leeds. Some meet together due to historical ways of working in that geography. Recognising the city’s diversity, they are tailored to local need and the features of that particular community.
All LCPs share the same key feature – a range of people working together, regardless of the employing organisation, to deliver joined-up collaborative care that meets the identified population’s needs. Each Local Care Partnership includes statutory organisations, Third Sector (community groups) and elected members, alongside local people, to develop services that support people to access the right support when they need it and thrive using their individual and community assets.
The Local Care Partnerships model is strongly rooted in our Leeds Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2016-21 (LHWS), embedding our vision that Leeds will be a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest.
LCPs build on the strengths and extensive history of collaboration in the city to realise some of the most exciting, person-centred transformation in health and care and tackle health inequalities and consider the impact of wider social determinants on people in that locality.

LCPs widely recognise that decisions made locally about people should involve the local community. There are many different ways that local people can share their opinions and get involved in shaping local health and care services.
We deliver regular, introduction to LCPs workshops for anyone who wants to find out what the Local Care Partnerships are, and what they can offer you and your organisation. You can register for a future workshop here.
Local Care Partnership Weekly Digest
This digest is an update of messages and items discussed at your latest LCP meeting, along with messages collated by the LCP Development team which we have felt useful to share with you. To make this a more accessible document, and in lieu of an accessible sharing platform for all, we have combined this into one document rather than a multitude of individual emails. However, this document still has a lot of information in it, so please use the contents table below to direct to specific updates. Click here to view the LCP weekly Digest.
