Worcestershire Housing Related Support Strategic Reviews

Worcestershire Housing Related Support is in the process of undertaking strategic reviews, based around individual client groups, throughout Worcestershire.  These pages contain information about the reviews which are currently taking place. Click on the links to find out more.

Why undertake a strategic review?

The aim of undertaking a strategic review  is to re-evaluate the current housing and support options available in Worcestershire. Services have evolved over time mainly on a district by district basis. The strategic review provides the opportunity to ensure a greater degree of planning and commissioning of future provisions. This will be in line with current and future needs and in line with relevant strategies to ensure joined up working.  

This will be a countywide and holistic review to encapsulate the views of current and ex clients, staff, management committees and stakeholders/referrers.  

Project Governance and Structures

Project Teams are set up to review the current provision for a particular client group, consolidate current good practices within Worcestershire and establish the needs and gaps in current service provision. To add to this research is undertaken, including visiting services considered to be good practice across the country. consultation will take place with current and ex-service users and providers to establish if there are other options/types of support that may have been chosen had they been available. An evaluation is carried out  to establish what would work best in Worcestershire and to adopt and share good practice with other agencies. The work of the Project Team is overseen by the project board. In some cases this is a specifically designated team of individuals; in other cases it is made up of members of CHOG+ (Chief Housing Officer's Group plus other involved individuals).

What does a strategic review involve?
