The "place based approach" to public service transformation and delivery has been identified as a method of addressing the challenges that are emerging from issues that cut across agency boundaries.
During this campaign week, which brings together both the Local Government and the Justice and Emergency programmes, Local public services - a place based approach will unpack what "a place based approach" means, key functions that underpin such an approach, and where the tech sector can be involved, add value and support the transformation into a place based approach to business as usual.
