Council Consortium Group
Established in 2013, the Local Government Council Consortium Group (CCG) is a diverse network of our council partners who work together and collaborate regarding the use and application of the Relational Partnering model.
The CCG is drawn from the Members Boards from across the partnerships and are working practitioners in the use of the model. The group is committed to sharing all information both across the partnerships and with new councils exploring this as an option. Transferring its learning to new partnerships.
The Advisory Group is similar to the CCG except it draws upon the Officers and supporting professional from our council partners. The Advisory Group meets up to four times a year to share and disseminate a diverse range of learning experiences and practices.
The benefit of the Advisory Group is that it also provides confidence and reassurance to new public sector bodies and provides an insight into what is being achieved across all partnerships.
Public Sector Plc launched the Council Consortium Group Commission Report in 2018 to our partners at the House of Lords. The report provides an in-depth look into the Local Government Council Consortium Group and outlines the value of Relational Partnering and the wider benefits of the model to create value from public sector property assets.
The Commission was supported by technical groups and panels made up of a diverse mix of experts from both the public and private sector. In total, more than 100 individuals and/or organisations contributed to the Commission. These included Members and officers of a diverse range of councils, Legal representatives (Solicitors, QC, councils’ legal lead), Financial representatives (monitoring officers, CIPFA and accountants), Local government officers representing land and property, wider public sector representatives from other public sector bodies (housing, education, NHS).
These external stakeholders were invited to contribute to the Commission to ensure its findings were drawn from a range of stakeholders with diverse expertise and skill.
This Commission report is intended to raise awareness of Relational Partnering and encourage greater understanding of how it works and the benefits it can bring to the public sector. Following the publication of this document, the Commission intends to support the wider application of Relational Partnering elsewhere in local government and in the wider public sector.
