6 West Mercia Budget Provision in Community Where we want to be - Hold the Budget, grow the provision

7 UNDERLYING PRINCIPLES  Public good, not public monopoly  Not everything needs to be done by “us”  Others have expertise  Others have access to resources  Others can add value  “think global, act local” i.e. systemic change driven locally

8  Dependence – Probation lead agency VCS dependent on funding risks distorting aims  Independence – VCS are the experts, alliances with private sector, bids for OM work etc.  Interdependence – we all have a place at the table, we hold money for the public good; it needs to be brought together with wider sector skills, experience, aims.
