Newport Communities First Over Arching Partnership Board

The Newport Communities First Overarching Partnership Board, or Newport C1st OAPB, has been established since the first Communities First areas were announced in 2002. Its purpose is to provide a framework of support that will enable communities to prepare and manage their individual action plans by creating a forum in which the communities and service providers can come together to make decisions concerning service provision and funding. It will assist in identifying needs, pinpointing problems and designing the delivery of local services to address them. It is recognised that this will demand a high level of commitment, accountability and endeavour from all stakeholders and the Newport C1st OAPB strives to provide the framework that will support it.

A key aspect of the role of the Newport C1st OAPB is to develop and maintain strong working relationships with the key agencies and strategic partnerships in Newport in order to bring about lasting change in the C1st communities.

The Partnership will also be able contribute early to the formulation and the discussion on the options for policy development, strategic planning and monitoring of performance.
