Previous Consultations

Draft Local Outcome Improvement Plan

The Dundee Partnership is determined to make Dundee a more successful and fairer city and we’ve been preparing our ideas and plans about how we will do this over the next ten years.

We’ve prepared a draft Local Outcome Improvement Plan for 2017-26 that builds on the ongoing extensive community engagement undertaken by partners and agencies across the city. It also incorporates the results of the Engage Dundee process. So we’ve been listening carefully to your views and we hope that this plan shows that we know what your priorities are.

But this is still a consultation draft so at this stage we are describing our city, the economic and social outcomes we are determined to achieve, and setting out our priorities for action.

Over the next few months we will be collecting the most accurate and informative performance indicators to help us map out our progress and setting targets to stretch us to do better. Our final version will be published by October 2017.

To participate in the consultation, please click here and send us your comments by the 18th August 2017.

 


Draft Dundee Community Justice Outcome Improvement Plan

The consultation period for the draft Dundee Community Justice Outcome Improvement Plan 2017-18 has now come to a close.  The report will now be submitted for approval at the Community Safety and Public Protection Committee and also the Dundee Partnership at the start of March.  The final draft will be available thereafter and will be submitted to the Scottish Government no later than 31st March 2017.


Dundee Fairness Commission - Poverty, Housing & Disability Survey

At the end of October, the Dundee Fairness Commission will be discussing poverty & housing and the financial impact of having a physical disability.

Finding and maintaining affordable housing can be difficult. Many vulnerable or low income families in Scotland can't secure social housing and are living in the private rented sector even if they are struggling to pay their rent. Rents in the private sector can be twice as expensive as those charged by a council or housing association. The number of people in poverty living in the private rented homes has risen sharply in Scotland.

Experts tell us that the usual poverty statistics we use probably underestimate the rate of poverty for people with disabilities. Families with an adult with a disability are twice as likely to have a very low income. Over a quarter of the people in those families will be in poverty. Benefits changes for people making the transition from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to Personal Independence Payments (PIP) will probably increase poverty too.

We'd like to know what people in Dundee think about this.

We know your story may involve personal details so we will treat everything you tell us confidentially. If you are happy for us to use your name when we are presenting views to the Commission, please include your name. And if you'd like us to be able to contact you to follow up on anything you tell us, please include your email address or telephone number. The survey can be completed here.

Dundee Fairness Commission - In-Work Poverty and the Living Wage Survey

At the end of September, the Dundee Fairness Commission will be discussing in-work poverty, the Living Wage and the stigma faced by people on low incomes.

Many people in Dundee are living in poverty despite that fact that one or more adults in the house is in work. If people can't find full and part time jobs that are fairly paid, they may not be able to afford the quality of life which most of the public think everyone should have. They may also rely on in-work benefits or tax credits which are continually being cut. More employers are choosing to pay the Living Wage because they believe it is better for their services and businesses if their employees are fairly rewarded for their work.

Often people on low incomes feel that they are not being treated fairly or with the respect that everyone in our community deserves. Some newspapers and television programmes misrepresent the real picture of life on a low income and paint people receiving benefits very negatively. These negative attitudes can spread across the general public and make the experience of living on a low income even more difficult.

Dundee Fairness Commission - Welfare Reform

At the end of June the Dundee Fairness Commission will be discussing the impact of Welfare Reform on people in Dundee. We will be looking at issues like the introduction of new benefits like Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payments; claimant commitments and sanctions; and supporting people to make their claims. We'd like to know what people in Dundee think about this.

The survey is hosted on the Dundee City Council website and can be found at https://www.dundeecity.gov.uk/webform/welfare-reform.

Health & Social Care

Integration of adult health and social care is part of the Scottish Government’s programme of reform to improve the outcomes of adults who use health and social care services.

A Draft Health and Social Care Integration Scheme (Draft Integration Scheme) for health and social care services in Dundee has been developed by the Shadow Integration Joint Board for Health and Social Care Integration. The Draft Integration Scheme is a legally binding contract between NHS Tayside and Dundee City Council.

The Draft Integration Scheme provides details about the duties and responsibilities of NHS Tayside and Dundee City Council as both organisations move towards establishing an Integration Joint Board for Dundee. It also describes what the Integration Joint Board will do to deliver health and social care services to people in Dundee.

The draft has been prepared in accordance with the regulations and guidance which accompany the Public Bodies (Joint Working) Scotland Act 2014 and in co-operation with those partnership and professional groups that have been established to support the implementation of arrangements for integration in both Dundee and Tayside.

Organisations and individuals are invited to respond to the Draft Integration Scheme.

This consultation is aimed at everyone in Dundee and we are keen to hear from individuals or groups who have a view on the proposals in the Draft Integration Scheme. Your views are important, so please tell us what you think.
