Code: BH/18/1140 Creating Opportunities with Communities & Neighbourhoods

As you may be aware Neighbourhood Hubs wards have been identified as, East Brighton, Hanover and Elm Grove, Moulsecoomb and Bevendean and Hangleton and Knoll.  The aim of developing a ‘Hub’ working is to:   
 
- Target resources on prevention and reducing demand for high cost services; 

- Work with communities to build resilience, allowing residents to take greater control to make a difference in their neighbourhoods;

- Use universal services to providing digital solutions, reducing the need for officer intervention and promoting self-help;

- Move away from silo working across services and sectors, sharing information and expertise;

- Joining up service delivery, making services easier to navigate and improving customer satisfaction  

In order to achieve the things above we need to create effective collaboration and build trust between us and our partners and communities. 

In support of this we have commissioned some specific development sessions for people working in the 4 Neighbourhood Hub areas. These sessions will bring cross sector services together to achieve better outcomes for the communities and residents.
