------------ From the Introduction ------------
“This Manual takes the widest possible interpretation of integration from joint working between the major local agencies to co-operation and collaboration at community level in such facilities as swimming pools and food banks.
"Integration is a process rather than a one-off event requiring people to work together in some practical way. In this, people in need are not passive recipients of support. They are involved as fully as possible in all decisions about joint working.
"This is respectful and empowering and works towards the unified whole. Integration must include person-centred care and co-production and must have an evidence base."
