The study will address the following research questions: 1) Whether and by how much has the Brighter Futures project reduced inappropriate admissions to hospital and long-term care?; 2) Has the range of services in the areas identified and delivered in partnership with the voluntary and community sector been developed, and to what extent are they person-centred and seamless?; 3) Has a culture of volunteering been developed and to what extent has the quality of life of those engaged in volunteering been affected?; 4) Have the partnerships/collaborations envisaged in the project plans resulted in improved information sharing, greater effectiveness for service users and efficiency gains?; and 5) Have social inclusion and independence been achieved?
