Meet the board

The board provides vision and direction for partnership working in the city. It meets at least four times a year to focus on joint decision making, work collaboratively to tackle issues associated with inequality, and share resources to meet the needs of local people. It also has oversight of the city’s strategic and local plans.

Each board member is an equal partner. Members are nominated by their organisation based on their authority and ability to fulfil the remit of the board.  Members are expected to:

  • represent the strategic views of their organisation
  • support the vision and aims of the partnership 
  • contribute to the delivery of the outcomes of the partnership as defined in its strategic and local plans
