Third Sector, Commissioning and the Big Society in Brighton & Hove

1,260 views

Published on

Two presentations back-to-back form a Community Workers Conference in brighton last week.

The first was used by Sally Polanski, Chief Officer of the Community and Voluntary Sector Forum to guide us through the current approach to commissioning in the city, with a particular emphasis on how the third sector could add value to the process.

The other is an overview of BigSociety and is based on an Urban Forum session which ran in the city recently. It was delivered by John Routledge, Head of Communities Team in the CIty Council.

Both offer an excellent primer on current issues, explain the jargon and start to explore potential opportunities.

    7. 7. How will this affect groups locally? The national backdrop is spending cuts – this is background rather than the motivation for these changes Locally:  Commissioning will involve de-commissioning  Level playing field to compete with ‘in-house’ Council run services  More competition for the work that you do from ‘employee spin-out organisations’  Important social advocacy role to enable citizen voice in designing and delivering services  Potential for more outcome focused and longer term contracts  Changing personnel in the City Council and loss of relationships  Changing performance management Immediately:  Domestic Violence and Substance Misuse pilots: needs assessment stage now!

    9. 9. What should I do: look head on the horizon?  Keep informed – www.cvsectorforum.org.uk/ic  Read BHCC Cabinet Papers  Consider the ‘added value’ that organisations provide and prepare to prove it to Commissioners – SROI models etc  Look for opportunities to collaborate: be flexible, relationships are important  Maintain excellent service user involvement practice and standards  Respond to consultations, surveys  Provide case studies around co- production
