Independent Stocktake 2019

Books Laptop

The national SPF received the results of an independent stocktake, carried out during 2019, by the Involvement and Partnership Association (IPA). The stocktake consists of interviews with national SPF stakeholders, observation of meetings and review of relevant documentation. Results indicated that any points of improvement from the last independent stocktake (taken in 2015) have been comprehensively addressed. A comparison with other social partnerships in the UK public sector – the Public Services Forum, the Civil Services Forum, and social partnership in Scotland and Wales, demonstrates that the national SPF remains an exemplar model.
