Improvement and Efficiency

What is the Improvement and Efficiency Partnership?

Regional Improvement and Efficiency Partnerships (RIEPs) brought together regional centres of excellence and improvement partnerships and are responsible for developing three-year Regional Improvement and Efficiency Strategies (RIES). There were nine RIEPs nationally.

The aim of the regional strategies was to support councils and partnerships to deliver effective services and tackle demands such as tight funding settlements, higher efficiency targets, growing public expectation, increased service pressures and ambitious national priorities.

Why did we called it YoHr Space?

Yorkshire and Humber created a Space where a large and diverse group of authorities and partners could pool ideas, resources and experience, in order to improve efficiently within the region.

YoHr Space was launched at the region's 'Making a Difference Awards 2008' and since then was enthusiastically welcomed as a positive influence throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Priorities

YoHr Space identified four key strategic priorities, based on priorities identified by councils and their partners in Local Area Agreements, each of which has a Lead Member.

• Corporate Improvement and Value for Money
• Economic Growth
• Climate Change
• Personalisation, Social Care, Health and Wellbeing & Criminal Justice

The aim of these regional strategies was to support councils and partnerships to deliver effective services. Working collaboratively to tackle demands such as higher efficiency targets, growing public expectation, increased service pressures and ambitious national priorities.
