The inter-relationships between economic prosperity, academic and employment attainment and substance misuse are well known and well documented. Partnership working in order to counteract a whole set of societal problems whilst understanding the bigger picture is key, and Sheffield DAAT is proud to be helping pave the way towards a better future for all Sheffield residents.
The DAAT works with the Sheffield First Safer and Sustainable Communities Partnership (also known as the 'Sheffield First Partnership') as well as a host of other local, regional and national organisations. The Partnership is responsible for identifying the key issues facing the City, developing a vision for the city and setting out how the vision will be achieved. The partnership brings together public, private, voluntary, community and faith sectors in order to do this.
The Sheffield First Agreement (SFA) is the Local Area Agreement for Sheffield and forms the delivery vehicle for the City Strategy 2005-2010.
More information about the partnership, board members and priorities can be found on the Sheffield First Website.
The DAAT 'Supporting Local Priorities' document can be downloaded at the bottom of this page, it details how work being done by, or commissioned by, the DAAT contributes to the targets identified in the Sheffield First Agreement.
Below are some further examples of how the DAAT works in partnership to improve local outcomes:
