Partnerships are subject to competing demands and operate in complex local networks on behalf of diverse and sometimes vulnerable communities, which means it is hard for those involved in their work to find the time and space to stand back and consider their effectiveness objectively. Christine and Verity would bring an informed and experienced approach to reviewing the partnership and a positive focus on how to build on its strengths.

Christine Graham Consultancy undertook a Partnership Healthcheck on behalf of the Kestevens Community Safety Partnership and the consultancy provided clear and accurate guidance on the aims and objectives of our community safety work and a series of recommendations which were recognised as key to strengthening our partnership processes. All the partners feel that they have been fully engaged and listened to throughout the process and I would not hesitate to recommend the service provided by the consultancy.
