Delivering modern, efficient and effective public services is a key priority for Sheffield.

The transformation programme is focused on how best to use the resources of public services in the city, how to better integrate those resources, and how to work more effectively with local citizens, businesses and communities.

The overall aim is to improve the quality of life for the people of Sheffield and by doing so improve the economic, social and environmental performance of the city as whole.

Sheffield’s transformation programme has two particular areas of focus.

One, in health and social care, is committed to putting people in control of their care and support and gearing the city’s services and culture towards promoting independence and increased wellbeing.

The other, called Ambition Sheffield, is an integrated youth employment programme that aims to reduce youth unemployment by 9% in 18 months.

But the city is continuing to develop new models in areas such as troubled families and public sector assets.

Underpinning the programme are six core principles:

  • Citizens and communities first - building solutions with local people.
  • Outcomes not organisations - focusing on results not organisations.
  • Prevention and early intervention - to prevent crises and high cost interventions.
  • Integration and innovation - bringing professions and organisations together and designing new ways of working.
  • Commissioning and delivery - designing new delivery models with commissioners and providers.
  • Investment for social value and future success - spending public money on long-term, sustainable solutions.

The Sheffield programme is a partnership between the public, private and third sector organisations across the city, led by Sheffield executive board and working with local communities.
