Themed Work Programmes
The project will deliver long term benefits for individuals and communities by ensuring more effective, sustainable and inclusive services are planned and scrutinised in consultation with service users and communities.
The aim of the project is to further develop Local Service Boards (LSBs) to support and enhance their ability to deliver culture and capacity change by reducing bureaucracy and duplication, maximising efficiency and effectiveness and ensuring coherence across individual organisations and the local and regional partnerships.
This will be achieved partly by a number of activities which cover mutually important matters such as citizen engagement, sustainability, equality, scrutiny, information sharing and performance management.
Focused on improving the understanding and practice associated with engagement with communities and specific users by meshing local expertise across Wales with national expertise in Participation Cymru and the Welsh government.
For further information, visit the Participation Cymru website.
An ongoing support package will be developed to help LSBs frame all their work in the context of sustainable development and deliver integrated, sustainable solutions that promote long term wellbeing.
The overview and scrutiny procedures used by local authorities need to successfully operate in an era where authorities work in partnership with each other. To help achieve this a co-ordinator will be appointed to work with local scrutiny officers on issues such as developing good practise exemplar projects.
All public bodies are subject to a range of statutory duties to promote race, disability and gender equality when making decisions about service design and delivery. A cross public sector group are bringing together a range of activities and best practice examples to support LSBs in embedding equalities into their work in a sustainable way.
Information Sharing and Performance Management
Effective ways of sharing data between partner organisations on citizens and communities is an integral part of design and development of new models of service delivery. To help achieve this, the remit of the existing LSB Innovation network on Information Sharing will be extended to cover Performance Management. In addition this network will be supported by web based technology.
