Supporting best practice

Supporting best practice in the ways we work, the skills we use and the evidence we draw on to reduce inequalities

In Bradford district and Craven we are want to support our workforce to deliver best practice in reducing inequalities. This includes improving the skills and tools we use to assess and reduce inequalities; the evidence base we draw on (both local and international) and the data we use (from personal stories to data led intelligence).

Our local approach to Core20Plus5

Addressing inequalities across clinical priorities, inclusion health and multiple deprivation is challenging. Our approach is to work closely with our thirteen Community Partnerships. We will align Core20PLUS5 and these locally determined plans to reduce inequalities. These locally derived priorities will look slightly different for each Community Partnership depending on the needs of their local population. You can learn more about our hyperlocal approach to Core20PLUS5 here. We are also supporting the Children and Young People Core20PLUS5 by commissioning some new support services.

The Core20PLUS5 funding for Bradford District and Craven is being managed by the Reducing Inequalities Alliance (within Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership) but will be implemented via Community Partnerships working together within a locality model.

You can find out more about our approach to Core20Plus5 here

Tools and resources to support our workforce

There are many tools and resources that can help us to reduce inequalities. On our Tools and Resources page we have pulled together resources that we recognise and use as the Reducing Inequalities Alliance.

Community Partnership resources

A range of resources are being provided to our Community Partnerships to support them in:

  • understanding the needs of their communities
  • what evidence based projects may work to meet the need
  • prioritising individual projects according to a range of questions and
  • developing strategies for monitoring impact of the projects

In February 2023 the alliance developed Community Partnership guidance to begin the process of considering opportunities with funding available for Core20Plus5. Data was also collated for each of the 13 partnerships,  to view an example of this, please email

Alongside this guidance and data Community Partnerships have been encouraged to use the Reducing Inequalities Toolkit to ensure all projects are consistently developed.

Evidence packs

The Alliance has also offered support to Community Partnerships to consider how they might address the inequalities they want to focus on using interventions that have an evidence base and are most likely to demonstrate impact on the Core20plus5 priorities.  Each of the priorities has been considered and although not exhaustive gives some options for communities to consider.
