A well-established partnership of public, private and voluntary bodies in Swindon wants to strengthen families and grow the local economy

Delivering public service transformation through partnership is a key strategy for One Swindon.

The objective is to develop and implement business cases, which over three years will maintain or improve outcomes.

At the same time, these will contribute up to a quarter of the savings targets for local public services.

Detailed business cases are being delivered as part of the One Swindon agenda and there are a number of aims:

● Reshape adult demand by enhancing independent living in the community, through reducing hospital readmissions and improving access to community support.

● Strengthen families through an improved multi-agency approach to troubled families, community-based peer mentoring, and reducing domestic abuse.

● Grow the economy by working with employers to develop employment opportunities, increase appropriate skills, and encourage local procurement.

● Develop an integrated frontline workforce capable of reducing demand for local public services.

● Encourage independence and resilience, and use more suitable community capacity.

One Swindon is an established partnership between Swindon BC, the clinical commissioning group, health and social care providers, fire and rescue, Jobcentre Plus, police, probation, and the voluntary and community and private sectors.

For more information contact James Griffin, Swindon BC’s head of policy.
