Community Commissioning Prospectus 2018-21

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council wants to ensure that the limited amount of Community Commissioning funding available benefits the most vulnerable members of our community.

We have set out the outcomes that we wish to achieve between 2018-21 in the Community Commissioning Prospectus. The outcomes are planned as not-for-profit activities that help to build social capacity; achieve community wellbeing and reinvest back into communities. This may be through demonstrating added value, volunteering or attracting matched funding.

These opportunities aim to achieve improved outcomes in six areas based around three themes. These underpin priorities in Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s Corporate Plan, and also support community capacity and resilience building aligned to the Locality approach whereby the Locality is the central place through which a strength based community asset approach is adopted. The vision is for community assets to be mobilised and contribute to the delivery of an integrated health and social care service in Southend.

The three themes are:

  • Reducing Poverty & Social Isolation
  • Promoting Healthy Communities
  • Delivering a Stronger Economy
