Our Priorities

As part of the Sustainable Community Strategy and following our 2013 Annual General Meeting, South Ribble Partnership has '3' main priorities.

These priorities are there to help us focus our resources; intensively working to deliver our vision of working better together to make South Ribble and its communities a great place to live, work, visit and play.

Local Services are supported to meet the challenge of Public Sector Reform

Organisations are better connected and integrated to ensure services meet the needs of all local residents and service users.

We focus on vulnerable people who may require additional support to be empowered to take action to improve outcomes for themselves.

Integration take place at an operational level for effective services that provide value for money.

Maximise the benefit of City Deal focusing on skills, education & community infrastructure

Residents are supported to access education and develop skills to benefit from the employment opportunities that will arise from City Deal.

To work with partners to aid in the successful delivery of the local Skills and Employment Strategic Framework.

To support the delivery of Community Infrastructure projects that support the aims of City Deal.

The Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector (VCFS) has a strong voice and is equipped for change

South Ribble has a strong and sustainable VCFS Forum, led by the sector, for the sector.

The forum enables groups from across the sector to meet the challenge of change, share learning and ensure their voice is heard where it matters to shape and influence decision making

Networking is facilitated to identify opportunities to work together

Partners and organisations are supported in networking and making new connections.

New ideas and innovative projects are developed between partners

Key local messages are communicated to residents and visitors in a co-ordinated way, making best use of resources
