Development Worker (3rd and Independent Sector)

What was the issue you were addressing or working on?

Capacity for 3rd and Independent Sector to engage in joint planning.

What you did?

At the start of the Change Plan initiative, we found that the 3rd and Independent Sectors were massively disadvantaged, having very limited executive capacity to engage in the emerging opportunities presented by our Adult Services Commissioning Group (ASCG) ,ie somebody to work on issues.

Establishing a post allowed much closer joint working, and the development of joint papers and proposals.

What were the outcomes - benefits or otherwise?

The development of the ASCG has been enabled by this post. Critically, the ASCG moves the agenda on from joint planning of the Change Fund (£3.9m), to joint planning of the whole Adult Care agenda (£0.5bn).
