Engaging in Commissioning: a practical resource pack for the culture & sport sector

New resources that build on the earlier LGA guidance Understanding commissioning: a practical guide for the culture and sport sector are now available. Engaging in commissioning is a new practical resource pack jointly produced by the LGA, cCLOA, Sport England and the Arts Council.  It aims to help the sector engage with other public services through commissioning, to bring sport and culture to more people and contribute to better outcomes for individuals and communities.   The resources have been informed by the practical experience of councils and organisations and distil the lessons learned.  There is a self-assessment guide to help you assess where you are and a step by step guide to help you plan your approach.  The LGA has also produced a briefing for councillors on Putting culture and sport at the heart of strategic commissioning.
