The mPower page on the Digital Health and Care Directorate website has been updated. 

The successful mPower project (2017-2022) has come to a close.  NHS National Services Scotland led this collaborative project which was funded through the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme with match funding from the Northern Ireland Executive, the Irish Government and the Scottish Government. 

This unique project actively developed new and existing relationships across health, social care and voluntary sector providers in each jurisdiction, using a mix of co-produced wellbeing plans, social prescribing and digital solutions. The project supported more people to live well, safely & independently in their own homes and communities.

Working with Community Navigators at the heart of the project, the beneficiaries, who are older people living with long-term health conditions, were supported to be more connected to their communities and to explore the use of digital solutions and personal wellbeing plans. Despite the challenges of working during the period of the COVID-19 restrictions in each of the participating sites, the team continued to share learning and to provide support to their partners and the beneficiaries. 

For more about mPower go to the Project website where you will find the project evaluation and final report and be able hear from the beneficiaries about their participation in the project.
