Strategies and partnerships
Shared strategic outcomes
The shared outcomes were developed by the Kirklees Partnership to provide a common focus on the difference we want to make to peopleâ€™s lives, and the avoidable and unfair differences in those outcomes. There is a suite of indicators for each outcome.
Each top tier strategy:
- has specific outcomes that it focusses on, but they will also contribute to the other outcomes
- has a strategic partnership that is leading the delivery of the strategy
- will be informed by the shaped by people shared outcome as its foundation, meaning that everything we do will be shaped by the people who live, work or study in Kirklees.
