This report by IPS Grow at Social Finance shares learning from practical experience of providing hands-on and technical support to scale up IPS across the UK.

Working across 7 regions with 135 CCGs, 44 health systems and 70 IPS providers this report identifies the key achievements, challenges and learnings we have faced whilst driving the expansion of IPS.

We have built upon international research and practice and made the most of the skills and experience across the UK IPS community to expand and create new IPS services across England and drive the creation of national standards and guidelines. Our goal has been to support the implementation of consistent, high quality IPS provision across the country, and whilst there is still a long way to go to meet the goals of the NHS Long Term Plan, the results to date have already life changing for many people accessing mental health services.
