There was submitted a report by the Chief Executive, Recovery Across Mental Health relative to the challenging impact of loss, loneliness and isolation in Renfrewshire.

The report intimated that Renfrewshire's Tackling Poverty Commission had encouraged joint working between statutory and third sector organisations to challenge the causes and determinants of poverty.  A working group had been established in order to explore key areas where there was greatest scope for joint action. 

It was the intention of the working group to consult with local individuals across Renfrewshire to develop potential interventions and solutions to the issues which created a sense of loneliness and unwanted isolation. A minimum of two public events were to be hosted in Paisley and Johnstone/Linwood to seek the views of local people, in association with individual surveys of people who were disengaged and harder to reach. A follow up event would take place to represent the findings of the initial public events.  

The report advised that the working group would seek external and complementary funding to augment existing resources to develop interventions to help combat loss, isolation and loneliness.
 
DECIDED

(a)   That the establishment of a consultation process to identify key issues which contributed to issues of loss, isolation and loneliness in Renfrewshire be noted; and

(b)   That it be agreed that the working group would seek external and complementary funding to augment existing resources to develop interventions to help combat loss, isolation and loneliness.

(a)  Report by Head of Policy & Commissioning, Chief Executive's Services, Renfrewshire Council; and

 

(b)  Discussion and workshop on the new governance structure.

There was submitted a report by the Head of Policy and Commissioning, Chief Executive’s Service, Renfrewshire Council relative to the new Community Planning governance arrangements.

The report advised that following discussion with Conveners and Lead Officers of the Community Planning Thematic Boards and agreement by Renfrewshire Council Community Planning Partnership Board, community planning structures in Renfrewshire would be changed after the Local Government Elections in May 2017.  The review of Community Planning arrangements recognised that much good work had been achieved through the community planning Boards since they were established in 2013. The purpose of the changes to the community planning structures was to build on existing strengths of the Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership, take account of changes to the partnership landscape since 2013 and further strengthen and streamline community planning meeting arrangements. A report detailing the new governance arrangements had been agreed by Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership Board on 7 December 2016 and was attached as an appendix. 

The new arrangements would commence from May 2017, with an early focus on delivery of the Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP) and associated Locality Plans by 1 October 2017. Engagement with communities on development of the LOIP/Locality Plans would take place in February/March and May/June 2017. The Local Outcome Improvement Plan and Locality Plans would be signed off by all community planning partners by September 2017 prior to publication by 1 October 2017.

In terms of the Community Care, Health and Wellbeing Board, it was recognised that significant progress had been made in delivering the outcomes of this theme. The three year progress report submitted to the Community Planning Partnership Board in September 2016 recorded particular progress in a number of areas.

It was noted that the Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership Strategic Planning Group would take forward the remit of the Community Care, Health and Wellbeing Thematic Board and work was ongoing to finalise the detail of the new arrangements to ensure an effective transition to the new arrangements.

In order to meet the objectives of the workshop the Board focused on key questions around agenda, membership and key learning.  It was noted that the results from the workshop would be circulated to members who were not present at the meeting to afford them an opportunity to comment and to ensure that members who participated were satisfied with the feedback recorded.

DECIDED:
 
(a)   That the changes to the governance structure of Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership and, in particular, the discontinuation of the Community Care, Health and Wellbeing Board, subject to ensuring that all the business of the Community Care, Health and Wellbeing Board was fully covered by the Health and Social Care Partnership Strategic Planning Group be noted; 

(b)   That it be agreed that Board members would participate in work to finalise details of the new arrangements and ensure an effective transition of the current Community Care, Health and Wellbeing Action Plan to the new arrangements under the Health and Social Care Partnership Strategic Planning Group; and

(c)    That it be agreed that the results from the workshop would be circulated to members who were not present at the meeting to afford them an opportunity to comment and to ensure that members who participated were satisfied with the feedback recorded.
