Newton values the opportunity to support and engage with CCN and its members around shared priorities.
Over the last year, we have worked alongside five county authorities to deliver outcomes focussed transformation programmes. These are across an increasingly diverse portfolio including adult social care, children’s services, SEND, and highways; but all see us continue to  put 100% of our fee at risk against measurable and sustainable impact. Where appropriate, we hope that the insight we can share can support other authorities, in part through our
campaigns with CCN.
Following the successful delivery of our ‘Future of Adult Social Care’ report in 2021 with CCN, we are looking forward to launching our ‘Future of Children’s Social Care’ report in March 2022. We are also delighted to have started    working on a programme of work together to explore the operational and financial impact of adult social care reform.
Through all of these work programmes, the input of CCN member councils has been critical to the output. Over the next year, based on conversations with a number of county authorities, we hope to start to explore what the future vision and transformation agenda might look like for the local government sector, particularly examining the opportunities for digital and technology innovation.
We look forward to further collaborating with CCN and its members over the next year.
