Managing the New Corporate Agenda: the Role Research and Information

23rd Oct 1998

Managing the New Corporate Agenda: the Role Research and Information at the Manchester Conference Centre, UMIST, Manchester

An event organised by the Social Services Research Group (SSRG) and the Local Authorities Research and Intelligence Association (LARIA)

To what extent are local authorities combining resources and working with other agencies and communities to identify and meet need? What are the tools at our disposal? How well informed are our elected members and senior officers? What are the ‘core elements’ of a corporate community plan? How can we identify a range of performance measures which realistically reflect the extent to which the needs in the community are being met?
LARIA and SSRG have, over the years provided a network for collating and disseminating research and information to colleagues in local authorities, health authorities, academic institutions and the independent sector. The two organisations have got together to arrange this seminar to help both those at the ‘centre’ of organisations and those in ‘service’ departments discuss these issues in the context of changes to local democracy.

Ethnic Record Keeping and Monitoring: Jan 1998

The Beeches Management Centre, Bournville, Birmingham

Ethnic Record Keepimg and Monitoring has been on the agenda of social care agencies since the late 1970’s. The development of Community Care Plans and Children’s Services Plans, as well as the new political context has renewed interest in developing, implementing and using ethnic record keeping and monitoring (ERKM) in the delivery of social and health care services. The aims of the workshop are to review the current situation with regard to the development of EKRM; explore developments in social and health care and the relevance of ERKM, and to provide an opportunity to share problems and discuss solutions.
