A unique partnership between think-tank, the Institute for Public Policy Research (ippr) and Camden LBC, aims to create forward thinking public policy to meet rising expectations in public services.

The new three-year partnership agreement will pool the ippr's proven track-record for innovation with Camden LBC's wealth of experience in delivering public services.

Key areas of focus for the initial stages of the partnership will include developing fresh ideas on tackling problems of anti-social behaviour, re-designing services to better meet citizen's needs and finding new ways of engaging with the public.

Council leader Jane Roberts said:

'As expectations in public services rise, local authorities need to keep a step ahead in developing policies which are both sustainable and properly meet the needs and demands of citizens in the 21st century. Building on the range of experience and talent available in Camden, we are looking to this partnership with the ippr to challenge us and help us think more imaginatively about how we can sustain and innovate our services. We are delighted to be working with a think-tank which has already had a great influence on public policy and services, and hope our joint work will provide ideas and solutions that can be used across local public services.'

Nick Pearce, acting director of ippr said:

'The partnership aims to improve the quality of thinking in ippr and the quality of services delivered in Camden. Our research will be enriched by experience of putting ideas into action. Camden will benefit from access to national policy debates and new ideas.'

The joint working will take the form of research projects, seminars and sounding board meetings.

During the course of the partnership, Camden LBC will support or commission a number of research and policy projects from ippr.
