Supporting local information and research – OCSI report published

In work OCSI have led for the Department of Communities and Local Government (CLG), Audit Commission and Local Government Association, we have identified how national and regional partners can more effectively support local partner research and analysis for decision-making. The report includes recommendations for national, regional, and local organisations for strengthening support for local partners.

In follow-up sessions, findings from the project have been disseminated at a series of workshops and presentations at national conferences. Early feedback from local partners has identified that the work is already helping strengthen local research functions to meet Local Area Agreement and Comprehensive Area Assessment needs.

The full report “Supporting Local Information and Research”  is available here.
