Working in partnership: Holding up the mirror

Working in partnership: Holding up the mirror

This seminar is being jointly delivered with Academi Wales and in partnership with Welsh NHS Confederation, Social Care Wales, WCVA, WLGA, the Office of the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales and Good Practice Wales.

It is widely recognised that public services cannot continue to be delivered in a traditional silo approach. Therefore, the sway towards a partnership approach of public services and citizens is inevitable.

Whilst there are widely acknowledged general principles of working in partnership. In reality, there are a number of different ways of delivering services between statutory and non-statutory bodies.

We fully subscribe to the maxim of ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go further, go with others’. However, we acknowledge that partnership is not always easy.

Partnership working as we all know brings with it inherent challenges but it also brings huge benefits to the individual needing that service. At the end of the day, the individual needing the service is unlikely to care about the barriers and who delivers the service as long as their needs are met.

This seminar will focus on ‘holding up the mirror’ so that the design and delivery of a service is focused on the individual, irrespective of who is actually delivering the service.
