The vision of the LSP is set out in the Sustainable Community Strategy as follows:
‘East Staffordshire is a Borough where people matter and where people want to live, work and spend their leisure time’.
The LSP has been recently been through a re-structure process with a streamlining of meetings and reporting arrangements.
From September 2012, the LSP will be managed by a single high level Public Services Board (PSB). The PSB brings together the most senior decision makers across the public service organisations in East Staffordshire with a view to improving public service delivery in a meaningful and transparent way.
The PSB will identify areas for joint commissioning and efficiencies across the public sector; identify opportunities for pooling of funding and establish a platform for future working with health bodies including the Staffordshire Health & Well-Being Board and East Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
The new PSB will also continue to discharge statutory functions such as the Community Safety Partnership and provide a link with the incoming Police & Crime Commissioner. The PSB has recently published its new Community Safety Plan for 2012-2014.
PSB members meet on a quarterly basis and represent key organisations that commission public services or ‘responsible authorities’ that deliver essential services to the community. Membership includes:
