Partnerships that bring others on board can be the key to achieving better outcomes the National Housing Federation has claimed.

The federation were giving evidence with People for Action at the Local Government Association's hearing into partnerships.

In its evidence, the federation noted that local authorities have a pivotal role in making partnerships work. It pointed out local authorities can not be 'all things to all people' and that real added value can be gained by working in partnerhips with others. This is already happening around the country but more are needed, if the use of existing resources is to be maximised.

Aaron Cahill, policy officer said:

'Projects of any size in the housing, regeneration or care in the community context will as a matter of course seek the agreement and participation of the local authority. The real challenge is to know how good partnership working can be recognised, disseminated and replicated'.

The federation argued that successful partnerships should include an agreed objective and strategy, a focus on the needs of customers, agreed methods of resolving disagreements and means of accountability.
