South Lakeland Local Strategic Partnership (LSP) completed a review of its priorities and arrangements for delivering them.
The LSP Executive confirmed its commitment to working in partnership but agreed changes were necessary.
The board clearly recognised that any new approach to partnerships had to support the Localism agenda.
The partnership also clearly recognised the necessity to link to the emerging Health and Wellbeing Board and Local Enterprise Partnership.
The partnership changed to the One South Lakeland Partnership Board and a new approach to partnership working involving key organisations across South Lakeland with an increased focus and improved efficiencies, started.
The new approach has a greater emphasis on ‘locality working’, with a focus on empowering and building capacity within communities to enable them to do more themselves and by working in partnership with each other.
One South Lakeland is a flexible partnership working to deliver the key actions and reducing the number of static groups in favour of a Task and Finish group model.
