The Crescent Life Services building in Dundee’s Whitfield estate is a model of partnership working in practice, promoting joint working between co-located departments and partners and providing a vibrant community resource in an iconic and innovative building which has community, health and social care services – along with shops, a café and a library – under one roof.
It has brought together 150 staff to deliver key ‘life’ services and provided a focal point for the regeneration of the area, showing that ‘local’ really does matter. The real success of The Crescent will be measured in reductions in social and health inequalities over many years, but in just a few months the building is already improving collaboration, streamlining services and encouraging local people to use a wider range of services and have a greater say in their community.
The Crescent is taking public service reform into the heart of Whitfield, and is an excellent example of local delivery improving lives and delivering public wellbeing through integrating services and enhancing community engagement to meet local needs.
