What we doGroundswell Partnership works with health and social care organisations to transform support and improve people's lives. We support sustainable change in organisations through personalisation and community based support, and we are committed to sharing our learning and spreading innovation across the sector. ??

We are committed to working in ways which harness the skills and talents of local people and communities in everything we do.
