Commissioners' Network (DfE Project Phase 2)


The SESLIP DfE Project Phase 2 aims to develop detailed specifications for new and innovative provision for looked-after children - with four participating authorities (West Sussex, Kent, Portsmouth and Milton Keynes) on the Project Team who are contributing significant officer time to the project.

It is anticipated that by the end of the project not only will the four Project Authorities be in a position to engage with the market directly using these specifications, but that outputs will become available in a structured way to the other 15 non-participating South East local authorities.

We have set up a time-limited (i.e. for the life of the Project, until September 30 2021) South East Commissioners’ Network.

This is to allow non-participating authorities to be kept informed of progress, outputs and timelines as well as exemplars of good practice in so far as is practicable within the constraints of confidentiality.

It is also hoped that the Network will provide an informal feedback loop to the Project Board as well as adding to a developing set of exemplars of good practice across the South East.

The Network's Terms of Reference can be dowloaded here.

If you are interested in joining us, please email Isabelle Gregory, the Project Network Co-ordinator, contact details below.

The idea is that being part of the network would allow you to be kept informed of progress and timelines as well as exemplars of good practice. It would also provide a conduit for you to pass any comments you may have on the project as it develops.
