Staffordshire and West Midlands Probation Trust

We recognise that the development of commissioning as a model for delivering services is growing, and Agencia has developed commissioning models in Local Authorities and health care organisations such as Primary Care Trusts, Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups. We have helped senior teams to adapt to new organisational structures and ways of working.

For probation trusts, this is new territory and it brings challenges to the ways in which senior teams lead and operate. We have recently worked with Staffordshire and West Midlands Probation Trust to prepare their senior management team for the transition to new delivery models. This involved delivering training to the Chief Executive, selected board members and senior managers from Staffordshire and West Midlands Probation Trust in order to identify the challenges and opportunities that arise from the development of commissioning arrangements for services associated with the management of offenders.  This resulted in the identification of key issues for the Trust in developing commissioning arrangements and how best to move forward.

“The seminar Agencia facilitated was helpful in assisting us to focus our thinking and I found your formal input on different commissioning models to be a good opener for us.”
