Single Integrated Plan
A Single Integrated Plan (SIP) is a defining statement of strategic planning intent for the local authority area and contains the Public Services Board's (PSB) vision for improving the city.
No single organisation can meet the total needs of a community, so there is a requirement to plan and deliver services in collaboration with other public and private sector organisations.
The SIP identified key priorities which the the PSB and other partners must work together to achieve.
The development of the SIP was supported by Welsh Government former guidance 'Shared Purpose - Shared Delivery', which set out the role of local government and their partners in helping to improve service delivery by working together to plan, work, deliver, and improve outcomes.
One Newport SIP 'Feeling Good About Newport' (pdf)
Each year an Annual Report is produced summarising the performance of the SIP.
Newport's SIP was developed around three core priority themes that were determined by a robust evidence base (Unified Needs Assessment), which are as follows:
- Economy and Skills
- Health and Wellbeing
- Safe and Cohesive Communities
There are also 2 overarching themes (Tackling Poverty and Vulnerable Groups) that the core themes should consider when developing their plans and priorities.
In light of the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 and the establishment of a PSB there is a requirement for statutory members to develop a Wellbeing Plan that will be published no later than May 2018, with the current SIP remaining in place until then.
