The project’s purpose was the redistribution of power, whereby citizens identify local needs and coproduce the agenda for improving quality in the Barkantine practice, Tower Hamlets. The project embodied power sharing at every level: system collaboration via a steering group, and a project team that included staff and community.

The phase one aim of identifying 7 QI themes by May 2020 was achieved. It was followed by the phase two aim of training community staff in QI basics, and implementation of a new QI co-coaching model.
