Title: Community Strategy Resources

WAG Guidance-
Resource and activity analysis

2.25 The intention of community strategies should be not only to generate new activity, but also to evaluate the ways in which current activities do (or do not) contribute to the achievement of the strategy's goals. Councils and their partners should carry out an analysis of their own use of resources - expenditure, staffing, and skills - in relation to the priorities and objectives identified by the strategy. The deployment of both revenue and capital resources should be examined to determine whether, considered jointly, they are being used in the most effective way. The aim should be to establish where there are gaps, overlaps or contradictions in resource use. At least in the shorter term, until partnership working is developed to a point where truly joint decisions can be taken, most decisions about the use of resources will remain the preserve of the individual partners. Nevertheless opportunities for better ways of working should be identified, using if necessary the powers contained in Section 31 of the Health Act 1999 and Section 2 (1) of the Local Government Act 2000 to facilitate closer joint working between local authorities, health authorities and other bodies.

It will be important for Ceredigion 2020 to assess how partners can better work together for the benefit of the area. This will mean addressing joint resource issues as soon as possible linked to opportunities that arise and identified in the Strategy so that action can be taken quickly for maximum benefit in the shortest possible time. How Ceredigion 2020 can do this needs consideration.


Ceredigion 2020 is requested to consider the ways of partnership working and resourcing.
