Local Government Yorkshire and Humber (LGYH) secured funding from Arts Council England, Museums, Libraries and Archives and YoHrSpace, to identify efficiencies in the delivery of culture services to achieve improvement against local government outcomes.
The need for this project was been identified through analysis of performance in culture services in the region in comparison with other regions, and by a network of senior local government staff working on this agenda.
Local authorities in the region were consulted on their priorities for support in the following areas:
• Establishing shared museum services
• Establishing shared library services
• Establishing shared arts services
• Establishing or extending a leisure trust
The outcomes of the project included:
• Driving the improvement and efficiency agenda;
• Increased understanding and demonstration of the value of culture services;
• Identification of long term improvements in culture services and cost reductions;
• Research and share good practice and solutions for long-term improvements; and
• Identify quick wins, long-term improvements and opportunities for joined-up service delivery.
