Development Programme and Consultancy

Public, third and private sector organisations must work more effectively together in order to improve children’s services and outcomes.

The RCS Development Programme, and the associated on-going support and facilitation provided aims to create the necessary conditions for children’s services transformation through a focus on partnership working, improvement methodology and implementation science.

The structured 3-day Development Programme will include input on the strategic commissioning cycle, the impact of other national landscape changes e.g. health and social care integration and self-directed support and also contributions from some excellent subject matter experts.

Through both the structured day events and on-going facilitation, the RCS Development Adviser and Data and Evidence Adviser will help prepare sites to optimise use of their collated children’s well-being data and to create focussed discussion and efforts towards the development of a commissioning strategy.

Both advisers will also provide input into an RCS Learning Network where local authority areas taking part in RCS are able to share valuable learning.
