The Board considered a report on the progress with creating a new way of working called ‘Together in Communities’ across agencies working with Children and Families in Cheshire East.

 

A locality working model was being adopted to bring together services to work more efficiently to best meet needs and improve outcomes for children, young people and their families.  The services in Cheshire East would be grouped into three areas to reflect North, South and Middle communities. 

 

A number of workshops had been held with Managers, Operational Staff and Young People to help design how the model would work operationally.  Further workshops would be held to bring together partner agencies to help build relationships to ensure the success of the locality working model.

 

The Early Help Together Strategy set out the intended improvements and impact of moving to an integrated delivery model based on the community configuration. 

 

RESOLVED:  That

 

1        the Board endorse and promote a refreshed locality working model for Children and Families Service, that young people have chosen to brand “Together in Communities”; and

 

2        the Board promote attendance at February Locality Workshops to further endorse the new ways of working, building upon Signs of Safety and creating ‘virtual’ team working across communities.
