Six key priorities are being set out today to make sure Knowsley becomes the ‘Borough of Choice’ by 2023.
The Knowsley Partnership has launched the Strategy for Knowsley to establish the borough as a place where people and families choose to live and businesses choose to locate and invest.
The six priorities are:
- Public service reform – collective working and using alternative delivery models to make the most of Knowsley’s public sector budget;
- Children and families – improving outcomes for children and supporting families to realise their potential;
- Education – improving attainment to help children fulfil their potential;
- Health and wellbeing – promoting healthy living, emotional wellbeing and mental health to create a healthier, happier Knowsley;
- Growth and jobs – growing our business base and opportunities for residents to access good quality, well paid employment; and
- Knowsley the place – delivering an attractive borough where more people wish to live, work and visit.
Every day over the next week, we will look in more detail at each of the six priorities and how our focus on them over the next four years will benefit you, your family and your community.
Today, Councillor Andy Moorhead, Chair of the Knowsley Strategic Board, explains the thinking behind the strategy.
(The Knowsley Partnership’s Strategic Board consists of representatives of Knowsley Council, First Ark, Knowsley Health and Wellbeing Board, Knowsley Chamber of Commerce, NHS Knowsley Clinical Commissioning Group, Knowsley Youth Mutual and the Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner)
