We are aiming to become a financially self-sufficient Council, to achieve this aim, we will promote and support businesses in the county, businesses looking to relocate to the county and those businesses we work closely with.
We hold four key priorities that will help us shape the future vision for Worcestershire:
- Open for Business
It is an exciting time to be doing business within Worcestershire with major current and future planned improvements in workforce skills, employment, infrastructure and productivity.
- Children and Families
With a strong focus on improving outcomes for the children, young people and families of Worcestershire we have been enabled our schools to achieve a 90% good or outstanding rating by Ofsted, with 70% of young people achieving five or more good GCSE's and facilitated an increase in the number of young people moving successfully into employment. However, will strive for continuous improvements in these areas and our providers are key in achieving this.
- The Environment
Worcestershire's environment is one of our key features and is crucial to the success of Worcestershire's tourism economy, whilst also providing an attractive place to invest for business. We have a strong commitment to
improveour transport networks and this will require equal commitment from local innovative companies.
- Health and Well-Being
By working with local partners we can ensure that the residents of Worcestershire are healthier, live longer, have
betterquality of life and remain independent for as long as possible. In order to achieve this, we must ensure that we are working with good quality care providers with a strong focus on outcomes, not just output.
