Council showcased at conference
7:10am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
THE way that Redditch Borough and Bromsgrove District Councils have been transforming their services, has been held up as an example at a regional conference this month.
The Reshaping Public Services Academy, is hosting the event to show how local services can be shaped around the need of residents in order to reduce costs, increase capacity, and drive economic development and sustainable communities by encouraging different departments to work together.
Bromsgrove and Redditch councils were held up alongside Stoke On Trent Council to show how the approach is working at the moment.
Chief executive of Bromsgrove and Redditch Councils, Kevin Dicks, said: “Historically public sector services have worked in silos when, as we have learnt, working together means a better solution for the citizen – and ultimately saves money.
“We started sharing our services around five years ago and began business transformation over two years ago. This conference is a great chance to share our innovative thinking and learning and hopefully encourage other organisations to take a similar approach.”
