To approve the Think Communities approach for Peterborough and the Think Communities Strategy

Across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, the public sector are seeking to bring together a combined approach to developing community resilience. The aim of the Think Communities approach is to unite key public sector organisations behind a common set of goals and priorities which support the development of communities, deliver better outcomes and through better early intervention at community level, reduce demand on statutory services.


Cabinet will be asked to approve this approach as a key partner in Think Communities and to approve the Integrated Communities Strategy.
