Listen to our thought leadership debate
Come along to our thought leadership session on 21 Feb at 11:55am, where our local authority partner Salford City Council, discusses how ‘Place Based Partnerships’ can help transform places, deliver better services, create value and increase investment.
Peter Openshaw, associate director at Salford City Council, Barry Pilkington, partnership director at Urban Vision (Capita’s joint venture partnership with Salford City Council and Galliford Try) and Deborah McLaughlin, head of housing delivery and strategy at Capita will be discussing how local authority partnerships can help transform place. Our speakers will provide examples of what’s happening to transform Salford as a place and how the city and region is now benefiting from taking this strategic approach.
For local authorities visiting our stand the team will be able to talk you through our local authority place framework, which can help you unlock Northern Powerhouse related funding from Central Government and provide you with a strategic view of your Place, attracting the right businesses, residents and targeted investment, all of which generate revenues that are sustainably reinvested into the locality.
Visit the Capita stand
Come over to stand 90 where our colleagues from Capita and our local authority partnerships will be on hand to tell you more about what we’re doing to support the Northern Powerhouse and our plans to grow Capita’s presence and services in the North even further.
