Local authorities

In the new health and social care environment, local authorities are closely aligned with Health & Wellbeing Boards and CCGs. As a result, they have greater responsibility for ensuring delivery of integrated and quality services within the community.

Community Ventures have strong relationships with local authorities in Yorkshire and the north east and have a track record for working collaboratively to provide a joined up approach that adds value to community services for:

  • Stockton on Tees Borough Council
  • Hartlepool Borough Council
  • Leeds City Council
  • Middlesbrough Council
  • North Yorkshire County Council
  • Calderdale Council
  • Wakefield Council

Many of these bespoke facilities bring together a range of localised community services under one roof within the heart of the community.

Such projects offer GPs, community services, library services, job shops, language advisory services, retail space and community rental space. Not only do these projects offer highly accessible, co-located services for patients and the public, they also help local authorities with their regeneration agenda, with facilities often being placed in areas of significant deprivation.
