BVSC Research was commissioned by Birmingham City Council to conduct an impact assessment of the Birmingham Neighbourhood Network Scheme (BNNS) to underpin a business case for continued investment in the BNNS.

The key objectives were to:

  • Identify the key relational elements of BNNS and how this has developed since
    inception; assessing the quality and impact of these relationships in supporting health
    and social care pathways for older adults and communities
  • Explore the role played by BNNS in the response to the Covid-19 pandemic and draw
    out the key learning and recommendations for the future.
  • Identify the range of interventions and associated outcomes (Pre and Post Covid-19) to
    assess the social value impact and effectiveness.
