Guest blogger Jez Hall, from PB Partners, discusses the potential role of participatory budgeting in future community service provision.
- public services are built around people and communities, their needs, aspirations, capacities and skills, and work to build up their autonomy and resilience;
- public service organisations work together effectively to achieve outcomes – specifically, by delivering integrated services;
- public service organisations prioritise prevention, reduce inequalities and promote equality; and
- all public services constantly seek to improve performance and reduce costs, and are open, transparent and accountable.”
