Partnership – last updated: 27 November 2012
Reading’s Local Strategic Partnership brings together partners from the public sector with the private, business, community and voluntary sectors so that different initiatives and services support each other and work together better. It is called the Reading 2020 Partnership, and is made up of a Board, a Forum and seven delivery groups.
There are currently two places for the voluntary sector on the LSP board, represented by Jeremy Sandell and Tim Clewer, in addition to a BME (Black and minority Ethnic) flexible two yearly seat represented by Rajinder Sophal.
-is responsible for developing and driving the implementation of the Sustainable Community Strategy for Reading, and the Local Area Agreement
-collectively identifies and sets strategic priorities for Reading, and agrees how those priorities will be met and how resources are collectively allocated to achieve them.
-monitors and reviews how partnerships and organisations within the LSP family are delivering the agreed priorities, ensuring that public resource is used as effectively as possible, and that there is the best possible synergy across public, private and voluntary sector resources.
-ensures an accurate evidence base on which to base discussions and decisions on priorities and which interventions will work and have most impact
-works to maximise the respective strengths and potential of the different sectors (public, private, voluntary) for the benefit of Reading and to create a culture of effective collaborative and partnership workin
