Lowri Edwards stated that the Single Needs Assessment was distributed to each of the Partnerships and partner organisations in September to give each an opportunity to consider their priorities. It was stated that, from lessons learnt from other LSBs, it was critical to focus on 4 or 5 priorities for the Single Integrated Plan where, by working in partnership there is added value. These priorities need to be deliverable and measurable, providing better outcomes for our citizens. These priorities should also be reflected in each organisation's Corporate Strategies / Business Plans.

It was agreed that the priorities need to be specific to the challenges facing Ceredigion, with rurality being an issue for all service deliverers in the County.

Following a discussion, 5 overarching principles were agreed which influence the SIP priorities:

  • Access to Service in a rural environment
  • Early Intervention
  • Bilingualism
  • Tackling Inequalities
  • Working together.

Following a lengthy discussion, the following themes emerged as priority themes for the Single Integrated Plan:

  • Supporting Families
  • Economy and Places
  • Independent Living.

It was agreed that there were clear links between the themes, with clearly identifiable needs (see attached document).

It was agreed that possible projects would emerge from these themes, focussing on the overarching principles.

The LSB Advisory Group will be giving due consideration to the themes and further consideration will be given to these at the next meeting in December.



Local Service Board Terms of Reference

Allan Lewis presented the draft Terms of Reference for the Core and Associate LSB Groups. It was stated that the Terms of Reference for the LSB Advisory Group and the LSB Executive Partnerships have been prepared in the same format, with links throughout.

Allan Lewis stated that a consistent format was critical for developing a 'brand' for the new LSB and the Single Integrated Plan. This will also be reflected in a new logo and website.

ACTION: To amend the draft Terms of Reference to include the role of the LSB Advisory Group and to clarify the level of representation from the partner organisations and partnerships required on both the Core and Associate LSB Groups.

ACTION: All to consider the draft Terms of Reference and to submit comments to Steffan Gruffudd by Wednesday, 5th December 2012.
