Transforming Integrated Care in the Community (TICC) has secured more than €4.8 million of European funding in this €8 million cross-border partnership involving 14 organisations from the UK, France, the Netherlands and Belgium.

In the UK, Kent and Medway have been identified as implementation sites for the project. In Kent we have identified our first pilot site as Edenbridge and we will be working with Kent Community Health Foundation Trust to implement an integrated community team in this area that will work to the principles of Buurtzorg. Medway has also been identified as an implementation site and this will be lead by Medway Community Healthcare.
