2 Test Valley Partnership Local Strategic Partnership Aims The overall aim of the Test Valley Partnership is to improve the quality of life for people living and working in the Borough through: – Listening to the needs, aspirations and views of local people. – Co-ordinating those needs, aspirations and views into a Community Strategy setting out a shared vision for the future. – Encouraging and facilitating closer working between local organisations and agencies to better deliver the aims and objectives set out in the Community Plan than could be achieved by organisations working on their own. – Overseeing the delivery, monitoring and evaluation of the Community Plan. – Reporting publicly on progress in delivering the objectives of the Community Plan. – Undertaking an ambassadorial role for the Borough 2

3 Responding to the recession – conference April 2009 The aim of the conference had been to bring agencies together to identify where joint working can occur in providing co-ordinated services to people who have lost their job. Seventy people from across thirty organisations attended the conference and have helped shaped an action plan which the TVP Education Action Group will be leading on. Actions arising from the conference are: Job Clubs – providing informal settings for people who have lost their job to search for new jobs and to access advice. Three clubs in Test Valley will open in 2009 at Andover College, the Askalot Shop and in Romsey. 3
