Transforming how community health and social care services are delivered

The Health and Wellbeing Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) provides a new model for delivering integrated public health and social care interventions, innovations and tendering.  It offers a platform where all partners have security in giving their best ideas to stimulate innovation; it removes perverse incentives from the service user pathways and shares surpluses/risk equally, collectively contributing to the creation of a resilient local health economy.

Our Purpose

We want every person to have a vibrant, active and meaningful life

We want every person to have equal access to approachable, compassionate and responsive healthcare

We want to pioneer a new, collaboartive model for healthcare


In the last year several other social enterprises have pioneered a new way of delivering public services by creating the UK’s first ever health and wellbeing social enterprise LLP.

Currently different social enterprises and charities provide different aspects of health and wellbeing services. When it comes to bidding for new contracts, alone these organisations may not have the capacity or size to foster confidence from the commissioning body. However, by coming together and working in partnership this enables these organisations to compete against large providers.

Comprised of public service spin-outs and local charities, the Health and Wellbeing LLP has been forged to meet the ever increasing move towards ‘macro-commissioning’. This new circa £33m organisation is ideally placed to compete in the new commissioning landscape.

Our Vision

Daring to be different, the LLP offers a new approach to health and wellbeing. The aim is to nurture healthy communities from the grassroots, creating real social value and sustainability. The Health and Wellbeing LLP brings together sector leading social enterprises in health and social care to create a pathfinding partnership offering a different approach to healthcare. Stronger together, they unite their experience, scale and skills to do things better.

Our vision is to pioneer a new collaborative model for healthcare where every person has equal access to approachable, compassionate and responsive healthcare that allows them to lead healthier and happier lives.

The LLP provides innovative solutions for commissioners, promoting integration and at the same time it opens up commissioning opportunities to smaller third sector partners that would normally be excluded or disadvantaged by the lead bidder models.
