Quarterly Community Engagement Update

Joint report of the Commissioner and Executive Director of Children and Community Services Department.   


The Board received a joint report of the Commissioner of Executive Director

Children and Community Services on the Quarterly Community Engagement Update.


The Chair observed that the engagement needs to be appropriately forward looking and strategic.


The Board commented that further structure on the cluster sector meetings with sector officers and continuity of officers would be useful to maximise the effectiveness of these meetings. Officers confirmed that considerations as part of professionalising the role of Dedicated Ward Officers was being given to giving these posts a specific tenure of post which would improve the consistency aspect to improve community engagement.


It was noted that the role of the Safer City Partnership was important to combine the key strands of work on engagement.


RESOLVED- That the report be noted.
