Havering Council has been named as one of the top fifteen highest performing council’s in the country.
The report aims to put the spotlight on how councils are performing while continuing to make significant savings.
The inclusion in the list indicates that Havering Council has been able to achieve greater than average outcomes from a less than average spend per head. This means residents receiving social care are getting a better service at the same time as the Council is making best use of public funds.
Councillor Jason Frost, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care, said:
“Last year, Havering was named by IMPOWER as the best council in London and the southeast of England. Being in the top 15 again this year specifically for our adult social care service is further evidence that we continue to achieve excellent value for money on the things that make a real difference to our residents lives.”
This year, IMPOWER are not publishing a ranked list of the Top 10 councils, deciding instead to list the 15 highest performing councils in alphabetical order and identifying the one council who performed most strongly.
Andrew Blake-Herbert Chief Executive of Havering Council, said:
“We’re delighted that Havering Council has been recognised once again for our high performance. The IMPOWER report on adult social care shows that there is much to be proud of but we are far from complacent. At a time when resources are so tight, we continue to make sure that every penny counts for our residents and as an efficient Council, we are proud to be leading the way.”
