In April 2013, Wandsworth Borough Council, the “Parent Body”, set out the programming of service reviews and changes in departmental structures. This included an invitation for staff-led alternative proposals for service areas identified for review and a Statement of Principles surrounding the support the Parent Body would offer to staff led alternatives for service delivery. The senior management team at the Leisure and Culture Division, the “Potential PSM”, agreed their service was well-placed to consider the potential for becoming a staff-led mutual. Please see attached document for full description.
