Annual Review of Significant Partnerships 2021-2022

Report of the Partnerships Director


The Partnerships Director submitted a report (previously circulated) to present to Members the outcome of the annual review of significant partnerships to enable the Audit Committee to consider the partnerships that the Council is involved with and to ensure that they have adequate governance arrangements in place.


It was reported that, through the principles of the partnership toolkit, the Council had an established approach to monitoring the significant partnerships it was involved with and, as a result, there were good governance arrangements in place for these partnerships and that they were delivering well against their objectives.

It was also reported that the toolkit had been effective in identifying high level concerns of the significant partnerships which included the 11-19 Partnerships; Creative Darlington; Public Sector Executives Group; Local Safeguarding Partnerships; Darlington  Youth Offending Service; and Safe and Cohesive Community Group (was CDRP).


RESOLVED – That the review of significant partnerships be endorsed and the actions being taken to address outstanding issues be noted.
