Newcastle Partnership


The Newcastle Partnership is the strategic partnership for the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. The Partnership replaces the former Local Strategic Partnership (LSP) and Community Safety Partnership (CSP) and is the mechanism for the delivery of the statutory partnership function in the Borough.

The Partnership represents the different sectors in the Borough and plays a vital role in bringing together a range of organisations with a shared purpose through co-operative and co-ordinated joint working that will improve social, economic and environmental wellbeing for our residents.

The Newcastle Partnership aims to be inclusive and is intended to be broadly representative of public, private, voluntary and community sectors in the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. The Partnership aims to be accountable to the local community it serves and open and transparent in all its dealings.

The shared vision for the Newcastle Partnership is:

“Newcastle Communities together, securing a prosperous future”

The Partnership is committed to continuously improving the quality of life and experiences of people, who live, work, invest, study and visit Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The vision for the Partnership will be delivered via two Partnership priorities:
• Enhancing economic growth; and
• Tackling vulnerability

The Partnership aims to achieve its ambitions through:
• A common strategic framework made up of a common vision, priorities, and outcomes;
• The alignment of activities and resources to deliver against the priorities of the Partnership;
• Joint delivery supported by effective performance management of outcomes linked to strategic priorities;
• Reduce duplication and bureaucracy and improved co-operation through commissioning and delivery within the Partnership’s structure;
• Communicating the achievements of the Partnership and remaining accountable to the whole community of the Borough.

Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council is the accountable body (lead partner) for the Newcastle Partnership.  Further information;

Locality Working

The Newcastle Partnership is committed to working together to deliver change, and to ensure that people are able to influence issues, priorities and activities in their localities across two key priorities of vulnerability and economic growth. It has therefore placed locality working at the heart of its work, as it empowers communities to develop their own approaches to dealing with issues affecting their own localities and enhances wider partnership working.

Locality Action Partnerships (LAPs) represent the Newcastle Partnership’s established infrastructure for the delivery of locality working and offer communities access to a range of partners to address and deliver against local needs and priorities.  Also, LAPs assist in community engagement and empowerment and play a part in the achievement of improved community cohesion.  There are nine LAPs in the borough, which are made up of a range of partners from the public, private, community and voluntary sectors with an interest in their local area.
