What the Partnership does - an overview

The Partnership has established seven priorities:

  • Workforce Development
  • Buy locally
  • Research and innovation
  • Optimising the social value of estates
  • Transforming streetscape and physical environment
  • Reducing environmental impact
  • Attracting external transformation funding

Our number one priority, is our workforce, which will drive the focus of the Partnership’s work for the next couple of years. Our aim is to change how we deliver workforce development in its broadest sense, across our health and social care workforce. Developing talent pipelines - providing a range of access options into work within Health and Social Care; developing careers; encouraging inclusivity, development and wellbeing.

We are assuming the broadest definition of the workforce, which includes unpaid carers, volunteers and the third sector

In 2020 we will start to deliver activity from our new Centre for Workforce Development; a dedicated resource for the health and social care sector in Bradford District and Craven. This flagship project of the Health and Social Care  Economic Partnership will help us to drive real change in the way that we manage, support and deliver workforce development across our Place.

The Partnership has however had some early successes over 2019/2020 which are captured in it's Annual Report
