June 2018

Good morning,

I wanted to let you know there is significant change underway at the Centre of Excellence for Information Sharing.

Over the past year we have been exploring potential funding opportunities to look at a more coordinated approach to supporting the public sector in overcoming information sharing challenges.

Although there is a strong commitment to information sharing in the public sector we have been unable to secure the funding required for the Centre to continue its work in its current form.

As such, we will sadly be saying goodbye to our team at the end of June, who are now on notice.

Myself, and a small group of team members are keen, however, to continue the work of the Centre. We are passionate about the impact effective information sharing has on outcomes for public service users, and have seen this first hand over the past four years.

We are currently investigating the potential of developing an alternative delivery model to enable us to continue to build on our past successes.

I would like to thank all organisations who have engaged with our work to date, and particularly our academic panel, and convey our gratitude to our amazing team whose passion and creativity has helped us to achieve so much in such a short time.

If you would like to continue to hear from us, and so we are compliant with GDPR, please re-register to our newsletter distribution list, and I am hoping the next time you hear from us, it will be with more positive news.

Yours sincerely

Stephen Curtis
