In February 2014 the Council adopted a new Outcomes Framework for Essex - a statement of ambition based on its Vision for Essex 2013-17 (agreed at Full Council in July 2013).
The framework sets out the Council's ambitions for Essex and replaces a range of previous outcomes and objectives. With this in place, the next step was to determine the actions ECC will, with partners, take to secure progress.
The Council has developed seven outcomes-based commissioning strategies – which were approved by Cabinet on 21 October 2014.
Each is designed to help the Council move from desired outcomes, to a range of activities that can deliver progress.
