    • Established Bridlington Children’s Trust Board – multi agency reporting to the Children’s Trust Board
    • Two workstreams – data and strategic development

    • Data sharing - DWP
    • Access to good quality household level data relating to child poverty
    • Eligibility/entitlement for services ie free school meals
    • Being clear at the outset of the key drivers/indicators of poverty
    • Resource management across LSP and voluntary sector to deliver the changes
    • Ownership/partnership working – who should lead?
    • Having realistic, measurable and resourced outcomes
    • - ‘is anyone better off?’
  • 8. Lessons learned
    • It is a consistent evidence based approach to evaluating whether services are making a difference and how (& at what cost)
    • Challenged what and how services were delivered to particular population groups (preferred method)
    • Identified where duplication exists and where customer needs are not being met
    • Provided a new approach for commissioning which looked at the whole system and informed its redesign around the customer
  • 9. What next
    • 42 emerging recommendations which have been prioritised into an action plan owned by all agencies, specifically to address:
    • Clearer ownership, strategy and governance for the entire “system” including the establishment of a single shared citizen data analysis team
    • Greater transparency/clarity of roles and outcomes
    • Reduce areas of duplication e.g. signposting/advice key area for redesign,
    • Embed the community & voluntary sector into the “system” to provide role models / mentors / safety net / advocate
    • Evaluate parenting services to maximise impact/outcomes
    • Better targeting of preventative services to shift families away from dependency to increased independence
    • Improve the quality, consistency and empowerment of workers through a review and promotion of the CAF
