With the support of Derby City Council, Derby Homes, Derbyshire Police and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, our model of neighbourhood working has now been successfully rolled out across the whole city. This is supported by neighbourhood managers who lead partnership working across each of the 17 neighbourhoods.
The Neighbourhood Working Framework allows local people to influence decisions and become more active in their neighbourhoods as well as providing a way to identify and respond to key neighbourhood priorities.
Neighbourhood Forums are an important part of this framework. Every ward has at least one neighbourhood forum. These public meetings are open to all local residents, community organisations and businesses. The Neighbourhood Forums are supported by Neighbourhood Boards which help to set the direction and priorities for each neighbourhood.
