Any other business

Minutes:

County Councillor Tony Martin and Sarah Palmer provided an update on the Transformation Challenge Award.  Following a joint submission led by Lancashire County Council, and between Chorley Borough Council and Rossendale Borough Council, it has been confirmed that the bid has been successful. 

 

This is an ambitious programme to develop a multi-agency "Integrated Wellbeing and Resilience System" for Lancashire by piloting the approach and implementation in Chorley and Rossendale. It will manage demand by bringing together activity across the two-tiers of local government in Lancashire with other partners to improve health and wellbeing outcomes and service standards.

 

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) have awarded £1,230,000, which is the full amount requested.

 

The next steps are to understand the funding allocations and governance requirements from DCLG.  LCC will meet with CBC and RBC to consider the activity required and next steps, and report back to Chorley Public Service Reform Board with the proposals.
