The Joined Up for Integration Charter Award encourages services to share best practice and work together to ensure the needs of all stakeholders are met.
Integrated services of this type will have a positive impact across each locality and city wide. The objectives of the Charter are to:
- act as a foundation for effective integration;
- ensure a minimum level of support for all service users;
- increase awareness of the network for all stakeholders; and
- provide a platform for staff development.
There are six commitments within the Charter which have been developed in consultation with partner organisations and with Joined Up for Jobs service providers:
- Up to Date
- Joined Up
- Continuous Assessment
- Sharing Knowledge
- Investing in People
- Employer Engagement.
To be assessed against the standards you will need to provide evidence by following the instructions within the Commitments section. Evidence provided must be dated within a year of the final submission date and will be viewed by Capital City Partnership assessors and only used for Charter purposes. Information submitted by organisations will be kept on file for the duration of the Award. For any organisation that is unsuccessful in securing the Award, evidence will be kept on file for six months following their submission. Applications will be assessed within three months of submission.
The Charter Award encourages you to use Caselink. Where information on Caselink can be used to evidence a commitment, please state the Service User’s IND number. Assessors will check this information on Caselink to confirm. All services/organisations can apply for the Charter Award; however, for those that receive funding either directly from or via Capital City Partnership, it is mandatory that they gain the award within six months of receiving funding.
