Newcastle Partnership is the strategic partnership for Newcastle-under-Lyme. The partnership plays a vital role in bringing together organisations with a shared purpose through cooperative and coordinated joint working, designed to improve the social, economic and environmental wellbeing in the borough.
The Newcastle Partnership has now launched the Newcastle-under-Lyme Commissioning Prospectus 2017-20. 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.
It is anticipated that the prospectus will continue to evolve over the coming years to create further efficiencies in the way in which we fund services locally and may attract additional funding from other partners.
The shared vision for the Newcastle Partnership is - “Newcastle communities together, securing a prosperous future”
Partners are working towards achieving the key objectives of improving people’s lives, improving the places in which we live, work and visit and enhancing the opportunities for creating prosperity in the Borough.
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.
As a partnership there are two commissioning priorities we are seeking to address. These are:-
- Tackling vulnerability
- Enhancing economic growth
The Commissioning Prospectus is focused on prevention and early intervention. It is aimed at building community resilience and increasing community capacity.
We look forward to working in partnership with successful organisations on creating innovative ways to use our resources effectively and efficiently and to deliver the outcomes that will make a difference to residents' lives.
