Glasgow City Council

Glasgow’s new ten year Single Outcome Agreement (SOA) 2013 will be agreed by CPP partners by Summer 2013. It will focus on three key priority areas where Community planning partners in the city believe that they can achieve better outcomes for residents by working more collaboratively and integrating services.

The priorities are: alcohol, youth employment and vulnerable people. A further focus for the new SOA will be to tackle persistent inequalities within specific targeted neighbourhoods in the city.

The new SOA for Glasgow will be accompanied by a Performance Management Framework that will set out how the CPP will track the difference being made over time through a series of performance measures. The framework will consist of a small core of high level outcome measures around the themes of alcohol, youth employment, vulnerable people, and also in the target neighbourhoods.

These will be supplemented by a series of more detailed outcome/output measures linked to the specific activities undertaken by Community Planning partners to achieve better outcomes for residents. The new SOA Performance Management Framework will establish baselines, comparator areas, milestones and targets for the CPP for each of the outcomes in the ten year SOA. The Framework will be completed by late 2013.

Glasgow City Council's Strategic plan: 2012 to 2017 sets out the Council's priorities for the next 5 years.  It is focused on economic growth and resilience for the city and its communities.
