INTERREG 2 SEAS – TICC – Transforming Integrated Care in Community


  • Implement the Buurtzorg model already applied in Netherlands, consisting in a provision of home help and care services, at a neighbourhood level
  • Create a 2Seas specific model (North of France, South-East England, Belgian and Dutch coasts) by studying major hurdles and adaptability conditions of the original Buurtzorg model
  • Identify pilot sites to launch new neighbourhood teams
  • Evaluate both the neighbourhood home care and services and its implementation in the 2Seas area

TICC will deliver:

  • Blueprint for successful transfer of social innovative service models in health & social care from one country to another benefitting all public/private services
  • 3 new countries adopting integrated neighbourhood based self-managing teams providing holistic person-centred care.
  • Changes to existing patient-data gathering systems to create better communication between nurses, care-workers & citizens
