Cost-of-living support and providing homes for Ukrainian refugees are just some of the positive actions which will be highlighted in a council partnership update.
Next week, Durham County Council’s Cabinet will be updated on the activities carried out in the last year by the County Durham Partnership (CDP), as well as other key initiatives across the county.
The CDP is made up of key public, private, voluntary and community sector organisations including the council, with all members working together to improve the quality of life for people within the county.
Cllr Elizabeth Scott, cabinet member for economy and partnerships (pictured above), said: “Through the County Durham Partnership we continue to work together to ensure we create good opportunities and outcomes for our communities.
“There are many examples of effective partnership work from the CDP in the last year, including some milestone anniversaries that have been celebrated.
“We know that we have strong and resilient communities across the county but by working together with all our partners, we can help to make those even stronger.
“We look forward to continuing to work together for the benefit of everyone who lives or works in, and visits, the county.”
This year’s County Durham Partnership event will take place on 17 November and will focus on celebrating 10 years of health and wellbeing in the local authority and the Health and Wellbeing Board.
Cabinet will hear the CDP partnership approach remains effective and will receive a report setting out key examples of partnership work.
Cabinet will hear more details when it meets on Wednesday, September 13, at 9.30am.
