The initial Toolkit and associated training programme was commissioned by Nottinghamshire Local Education and Training Council (LETC) and funded by Health Education East Midlands (HEEM).

A sub-group of the LETC developed a tender specification for the programme, with the contract awarded through a competitive OJEU process.

Initial costs associated with the toolkit development, training and evaluation were met by Health Education East Midlands (and subsequently Health Education England).

Further developments and ongoing maintenance have been enabled by investment in modules, training events and toolkit logins by providers, commissioners and HEE from other areas including:

  • Telford & Shropshire
  • Eastern Cheshire
  • North West AHP Network
  • Southern Derbyshire
  • Lewisham & Greewnich
  • Merton
  • Portsmouth & South East Hampshire
  • South Kent Coastal
  • Newcastle & Gateshead
  • South Tees
  • Hambleton, Richmondshire & Whitby

The Toolkit does not currently receive direct funding from Health Education England and so needs to be ‘self-supporting’. ┬áIt is administered by Fusion48 who also invest their time, energy, enthusiasm and money to keep the resource available and relevant.
