Knowsley Borough Council

MV were commissioned by Knowsley Borough Council (KBC) to provide a strategic overview of potential delivery models for their children’s services.

This involved working with both the leadership and the staff of the children’s services to understand the reasons for their examination of different options.

At the heart of our work was understanding how any changes would improve outcomes and services. We worked with Knowsley to understand their operating context and how issues like integration, devolution and aggregation are impacting and will impact services over the medium term.

At every point, we focussed on the ‘why’. This approach ensured people at all levels of the organisation could understand both the reasons for change and the logic for future delivery.
