HATCH Local Care Partnership

HATCH is a well-established and vibrant partnership which covers the areas of Chapeltown and Burmantofts, Harehills and Richmond Hill.

We have a diverse Local Care Partnership that includes general practice, community health services, Public Health, Adult Social Care and a broad range of Third Sector and community groups.

We have a strong identity as HATCH LCP to ensure that we provide services and support that meet the needs of people living in this area.  The LCP has a focus on building relationships to deliver improved services with approaches around conversations, connections and assets and strengths.  Tackling health inequalities is a key priority for the LCP as 39% of HATCH residents live in areas within the 1% most deprived in the country.

Current Priorities

Ageing Well {Population Health Management}

Partners from across the HATCH Local Care Partnership are working together to understand where the greatest opportunities are to improve health and wellbeing for defined groups of local people. By using data and a population health management approach, we are supporting a group of local people who are over 65 years of age, living with frailty and poorly controlled diabetes.

As part of the programme, a Care coordinator role (to be tested and evaluated as part of an initial pilot phase) will be involved in proactive, person-centred care planning with this group of people – finding out what is important to them and overseeing and coordinating their care when needed.  Linking with existing services and initiatives within the local area will be key, as well as exploring how local resources can be used differently or redesigned to make the best use of collective resources.

This is such an exciting opportunity to also consider the wider determinants of health which we know impact significantly on local people, as well as work alongside a wide range of colleagues which will strengthen relationships going forward.

We look forward to sharing our progress and learning.

Active Travel {Richmond Hill}

In December 2020, the LCP, spearheaded by Active Leeds, was successful in a bid to the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Partnership for money to implement and embed 15-minute neighbourhoods; a behavioural change that gets local people to swap quick car journeys for walking, cycling or scooting to key destinations, such as town centres, medical services including pharmacies and local green spaces, which are in the region of 15 minutes away. Not only will this have an environmental impact but have positive impacts on the health and wellbeing of local people. This project is in the scoping stage and looks to involve community voice and influence from the get-go.

Supporting families who have a member who is shielding

The LCP were successful in bidding for funding from the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership to support local people who have been affected by COVID-19.  As part of this project, the LCP is supporting families with a member who is shielding.  Working with the Orion partnership ( a group of third sector organisations), we will work with the family to understand their experience of shielding, what is working well and areas that they may need additional help.  They will make a plan with the family, identifying gaps, issues and concerns that are surfacing. All aspects of health and wellbeing will be considered and the resources of all partners in HATCH will be available to meet needs.

Children and Families

We are currently exploring how we best support young people who are carers and other vulnerable groups of young people.


When they meet

The LCP meets on the third Tuesday of every month, 3 pm – 4.30 pm.

How to get involved

We are keen to include more partners across the patch, in particular those who can support our current priorities and community groups. If you would like more information or to join us, please contact​​
