Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Report on the contribution of a community development approach to community care, drawing on four pilot initiatives in Scotland. Explores the links between community care and other issues which are of concern to local people, and how this can be used to reduce the social exclusion of service users and carers. Draws lessons for effective partnership working between community organisations and voluntary and statutory sector service providers.
