To develop joint working and improved communication between service delivery agencies so that;

a)  Duplication of front line services is avoided.
b)  Service users / local people receive more and better services.
c)  Local funders / commissioners achieve better value for money.
d) Synergies and economies of scale are achieved e.g. shared office space, shared back office costs.
e)  Local statutory service providers can develop integrated services with local voluntary sector providers with clear referral procedures and client pathways.
f)  Larger agencies can provide practical development support for smaller agencies interested in service delivery.
g) Monitoring data collected by member agencies can be used strategically to highlight unmet need, gaps in service and challenge erroneous assertions made by others (e.g. that some groups are not receiving a service when, in fact, they are).
h)  Local statutory agencies can be afforded access to “hard to reach” service user groups in order to liaise, consult and promote their services e.g. SLaM Make Me Smile Fund, Small Sparks Fund
i) Member agencies can manage the relationship between generic (universal) and specialist service provision e.g. CAB may provide general information to the whole community and may refer to others for more specialist support such as advocacy for older people or representation at welfare benefits advice tribunals for people with mental health problems.
