Working with people, partners and place
We use the phrase 'We're Kirklees' within our staff teams to reflect our pride in Kirklees and our commitment to working together for all our places.
Our response to the pandemic has shown how important our approach to 'people, partners and place', has been for helping us to achieve our outcomes, and this approach will continue to be important for helping to shape our recovery, in a way that leaves no one behind. Read more about our approach.
Just like individuals, our organisation's values guide the way we think and act. In our response to the pandemic we have seen our values in action, under incredible pressure and in a rapidly changing environment. Read more about our values.
Our shared outcomes
We remain committed to the shared outcomes we have agreed with our partners. These outcomes describe what it is we want to achieve and help us focus our planning and action as a council.
Apart from the addition of a new shared outcome, the other outcomes haven't changed, although the steps we will need to take to get us there might be different because of the constantly evolving national and local impacts of the pandemic, and because of our focus on achieving inclusion as part of everything we do.
