Today, (Friday 9th November) East Staffordshire Local Strategic Partnership is launching its ‘Let’s Work Together’ scheme.


Let’s Work Together aims to provide home visitors with the extra skills they need to improve services being offered to residents. As a simple example, this may be a Health Visitor who notices that a family home doesn’t have a smoke alarm fitted and contacts the Fire and Rescue Service to provide the device.


Paul Costiff, Head of Built Environment said: “The benefit of this scheme is that services from across the Public Sector are being joined up.


“The scheme will enable a robust referral process, which will allow home visitors to help local people access support from the full spectrum of service providers agencies. Above all let’s work together aims to equip home visitors with the support they need to never miss a chance to make a difference.”


“An obvious upside from working in a partnership arrangement such as this is the value for money it provides the public.”


Organisations leading and coordinating this project are East Staffordshire Borough Council, Staffordshire County Council, Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, South Staffordshire PCT.


Helen Gill, Staffordshire County Council’s District Commissioning Lead for East Staffordshire added: “We are looking forward to bringing the benefits of Let’s Work Together to East Staffordshire. This joined up approach will offer benefits to residents and service providers.”


A Consultation Event will take place on Friday 9th November 2012 at the Town Hall, where service providers will be coming together to agree the most suitable package for East Staffordshire Let’s Work Together.
