  • Co-produce funding bids and  include people’s voices in our decisions
  • Continually gather evidence of need,  quality and  respond to it as quickly as possible
  • Ensure that any delivery partnerships we create will have partners who sign up and adhere to these principles
  • Embed role of the VCSE in the whole ICCS system by working with  commissioners and all system partners.

We will be purpose driven…

Promoting culture change across the ICCS system  – in line with the LBH VCS Strategy

‘We will work to  build a stronger shared understanding between the ICCS and the VCSE, enabling each to understand the strengths and challenges faced in their respective roles. A changed dynamic will be manifested in a more equal partnership, built on trust and common purpose.

A more collaborative culture will mean that it is possible to think beyond traditional organisational boundaries and share ideas, intelligence, expertise, as well as creating opportunities for more creative partnerships, joint bidding, and shared services. Ultimately, this will help to benefit residents in Hackney with cross sector working focusing on different ways to address the needs of the most vulnerable in the borough.’ LBH VCS Strategy (adapted to ICCS)
