At the end of today’s summit Jackie Mould, Director of Birmingham City Councils Partnership Team talks about what next to summarise:
The hard woks starts now – this is not the end only the beginning. The steering group is now going to look at pulling all this information together into actions.
This means culture change some of the findings will mean a new way of working. We need to move away from a deficit based approach to an assets based approach to delivering services. How do we look more outwardly and work across organisations to make things happen.
We need to empower people and communities for take ownership, encouraging positive deviance.
We are going to draft a green paper by September, and it will be an opportunity for everyone to comment and contribute towards it before it is published in Autumn. We will be looking to put into place Short, Medium and Long term goals and having more conversations with partners in the city.
We want to set up a repository of information so we can develop a collective memory of city and make it all available for everyone to access.
There will be another summit in the Autumn.
