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;
The Newcastle Partnership has now launched the Newcastle-under-Lyme Commissioning Prospectus 2017. The Prospectus brings together funding from the Borough Council, Staffordshire County Council and the Office of the Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner to target a range of shared priorities and to address outcomes identified from local data and intelligence within our communities.
Newcastle-under-Lyme is characterised by significant variations in the level of employment, health, economic wellbeing, housing and overall living standards. The difference in life expectancy varies from nine years longer for men and 13 years longer for women, between the most affluent and deprived areas in the borough. The borough also has areas of considerable affluence but also includes three wards that fall into the 10 per cent most deprived in the country. Reducing these inequalities across the borough is a prime focus for the Partnership.
The Commissioning Prospectus is focussed on prevention and early intervention. It is aimed at building community resilience and increasing community capacity.
The Commissioning Prospectus (1MB) provides information on the funding available, who can apply and what can and cannot be funded. It also gives further information on the priorities and objectives and where to get further information.
