Come and join us - we know what we are doing and where we are going, and we are managing the money to enable us to get there. Co-design and co-production are not just words but our way of working with User Led Organisations and other stakeholders to develop truly accountable services which deliver improved outcomes for our residents.
We are pushing the boundaries with new ways of working - a social work pilot, Right to Control pilot, Dementia care demonstrator site and our locality teams are co-located with community services and the police in local District and Borough Councils.
