National i-THRIVE Community of Practice June 2022


World Wellbeing Week
27th June - 1st July 2022

This week marks the fourth annual World Wellbeing Week, raising awareness of wellbeing internationally. It celebrates all aspects of wellbeing, including physical, emotional and mental health at work or at home, in the community and wider society. It provides an opportunity to celebrate all workers across the sector, who have had a significant impact on wellbeing worldwide. The importance of wellbeing has been prioritised throughout the pandemic, in which people's resilience and adaption has been highlighted. This week brings an opportunity to bring colleagues closer together, re-connect with friends and family and prioritise self care.

Community of Practice Event, November 2022
Supporting Shared Decision Making and Personalised Care through
Integrated Front Doors

Due to popular demand, the National i-THRIVE team will be presenting on the hot topic of Integrated Front Doors at the next Community of Practice event.

In the ICS design framework (NHS, 2021), it is stated that Inregrated Front Doors are key to allow partners to reach their shared goals of:
- improving outcomes and tackling inequalities
- enhancing productivity and ensuring best use of resources
- strengthening local communities.
Integrated Front Doors will therefore support collaboration in order to achieve the vision set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.

It is hoped that this CoP event will be held in person in early November, with details to follow soon. Keep a look out for further comms in next month's newsletter!

As we are committed to increasing the diversity of our speakers and events, we are particularly keen to offer presenting opportunities and training to those from minority groups. Please get in touch if you would be interested in presenting on this topic. 

We would especially love to hear from children and young people's services offering co-produced Integrated Front Doors, in line with the principles of the THRIVE Framework.

- An animation of the THRIVE Framework, which was co-produced with children and young people, can also be found in this short clip here.
- An implementation story on co-producing the animation can be downloaded here.

Further information on co-production week can be found on the Social Care Institute for Excellence website here.

If you have any queries about implementing the THRIVE Framework for system change (Wolpert et al., 2019), please contact the team at We will endeavour to help in any way we can.

With warm wishes,
