What is the Coventry Partnership?
The Coventry Partnership is the Local Strategic Partnership (LSP) for Coventry which brings together senior representatives from the community sector, private sector, public sector and voluntary sector to work together to deliver positive change within the city and demonstrate the value of collaboration between organisations to create a better future for all.
The Sustainable Community Strategy (SCS) cannot be delivered by one organisation on its own, but together partners bring their combined resources, energy and creativity to meet the economic, social and environmental needs of Coventry by working together to improve the ‘quality of life’ of local residents and to improve the city as a place to live, work and play.
