Green Dreams Project

The Green Dreams Project partnered with Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, Health Improvement Service in March 2012.

The project was successful in attracting funding from NHS East Lancashire for a twelve month pilot to establish if the model can be replicated within further General Practices across East Lancashire.

The Green Dreams Project provides local, community-based solutions in East Lancashire to unemployment, isolation and reduced quality of life.

It prioritises individuals whom other agencies have been unable to help. The unique approach comprises:

  • Tailored coordinated care
  • Marrying health needs with social needs
  • The creation of meaningful group activities

The key aims of this evaluation project are to explore the extent to which the Green Dreams project is delivered as intended and particularly, to examine the impact of the project on both service users and the wider benefits to the health agenda.

A case study approach will be used to capture learning, experience and potential wider benefits from the Green Dreams pilot project reflecting on stakeholder experience and organisational systems-level working.
