A quick post. I’ve just been reading the Williams Commission Report on Public Services in Wales and I thought I’d share this key recommendation –
“the basic purpose and nature of public service needs to be redefined. The key features of that redefinition are:
A clearer shared vision and sense of common purpose between government at all levels, citizens, and communities;
A much greater focus on co-production with citizens and communities to identify and implement means of pursuing those outcomes; and
Consequently, a much stronger emphasis on enablement, empowerment and prevention in the design and delivery of public services.”
Says it all really, but what will it take to actually realise this aspiration? I hope we can contribute!
