Strategic Partner Fund

The new Strategic Partners Fund programme (2017 to 2024) focuses investment more closely on the changing pattern of need across the borough. Many councils are cutting such investment to zero, so this is a major expression of the council’s belief in the local voluntary sector’s expertise, trust and connections with residents, as well as its proven ability to innovative and stimulate community resilience.  

Aims of the Strategic Partners Fund: Neighbourhoods

  • Maximise the use of existing strengths, assets and resources within the investment zones for the benefit of local residents
  • Improve life chances and opportunities for residents to ensure that they are not held back because of background, circumstance or identified community
  • Increase opportunities for residents from different backgrounds to be more connected and more involved in local social action, to help themselves and each other.

Aims of the Strategic Partners Fund: Equalities

Ensure mainstream services deliver for all, prioritising race (black and minority ethnic and refugee communities), sex (women) and sexual orientation (lesbian, gay and bisexual communities) equalities characteristics by:
  • Identifying and tackling the barriers faced by the above groups
  • Identifying ways to increase access
  • Increase levels of participation, social action and influence in civic society by those communities currently underrepresented
  • Improve life chances and opportunities for residents to ensure they are not held back because of background, circumstance or identified community

A reduction in investment to the sector has necessitated prioritising this fund to those characteristics which do not currently receive direct investment from the council as a whole. This is to ensure, as far as possible, effective services for all characteristics.

The equalities groups prioritised are:

  • Race (black and minority ethnic and refugee communities)
  • Sex (women)
  • Sexual orientation (lesbian, gay and bisexual communities).

Strategic Partners Fund: Projects

Following the allocation of the Strategic Partners Fund there were still some gaps in certain areas where no strategic partner had been identified. The decision was made to commission projects which would invest in outcomes for residents in these areas – these are known as the Strategic Partners: Projects.
