This report is an economic evaluation of an "Experts by Experience" Model in Basildon District. The aim of the project was the development of a business case based on economic evaluation methods which supports local commissioners in Basildon in the reconfiguration of services, following the implementation of Turning Point's Connected Care community led audit and recommendations for commissioning and provision of services in the communities of SE Pitsea and Vange. One of the recommendations made by the Connected Care Community researchers was for a community led and delivered service, Experts by Experience (EbE). The business case examined likely costs and outcomes of a community navigator programme, (EbE), which targets high-risk individuals and those with complex or multiple needs in the deprived neighbourhoods of SE Pitsea and Vange in Basildon district. The service design was developed by members of the community, commissioners and other stakeholders, based on the audit of local needs carried out by local people. The economic evaluation explored, from a societal and total public budget perspective, the short-term (1 year) likely costs and benefits of a hypothetical implementation of the EbE programme.
