Information about Better Placed Joint Committee (Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark)

The London Boroughs of Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark have established a joint committee to discharge of executive functions on behalf of the three boroughs, in so far as they relate to joint activities or areas of common concern in relation to growth, economic development and skills.  Over time the committee may consider other areas.

 

The committee will:

 

Provide oversight and decision-making of the Pathways to Employment pilot.

Work together to transform local public services in employment support.

Work collectively with employers, colleges and other stakeholders on jobs and skills, where appropriate.

Represent the collective interests of the constituent boroughs to national and local government and other bodies, where appropriate.

Jointly bid for funding, training and employment programmes e.g. EU funding and oversight of that funding.

Manage and allocate spending of funding and other financial resources within its remit.

Take on additional responsibilities and funding delegated from Government where the committee judges this to be in best interest.
