Note the progress against the agreed work plan (at Appendix 1).
Specific attention is drawn to:
The development and rollout of a survey that London Councils has carried out with lead officers in all 33 boroughs. This has set out to gather information on boroughs’ relationship with third sector infrastructure organisations in their area. It asks questions about boroughs’ funding of this infrastructure, their approaches to commissioning from the sector and related issues. To date, 24 boroughs have replied to this, London Councils officers are analysing the results and encouraging the remaining boroughs to respond. This research provides the evidence base for the first meeting of the member sub-committee and is a sound platform for the work on the remainder of the work plan. A borough officer sub-group has been set up to provide advice to the work.
