BLOG: Experts help us to help our residents
Here at the Councils, we’re committed to providing our residents with the best possible services and that can involve engaging experts in their field to provide them.
One of my hats is as a commissioner and this means identifying, selecting and paying another organisation to deliver a project or service on behalf of the Councils. These projects will have been evidenced as a need by local residents or groups, and I ensure the best and most effective organisation is commissioned to get the desired outcomes for the local community.
I manage three contracts. They are with Citizens Advice, Community Works and Dial-a-Ride Southern Services.
