  • Lead every member of the community to engage on a journey of continuous improvement building upon their previous best;
  • Provide opportunities for economies of scale through commissioning of services and purchasing of resources;
  • Share expertise, best practice and resources to ensure best value for money;
  • Identify needs and best practice through the confidential sharing of data and information.
