Housing: partners

Across the Cambridge housing sub-region groups meet to share thoughts, ideas, good practice and resources and to jointly tackle issues. Many of these groups, in turn, link up to form wider networks. There is a whole network of housing-related groups, and a network of health and wellbeing partners and organisations.

Agendas overlap between groups and networks, so this page has been set up to help people grasp who meets and what they focus on.

The housing network

Here is a link to the CRHB diagram of housing - describing our housing network locally (to be updated).

Our Guide to Housing also helps set out the wide variety of housing teams and project active across the local area. It provide web links to help you get in touch with the various agencies 'out there' who can help and advise residents with housing issues.

Housing providers

There are about 80 housing providers - including housing associations - which own and manage social housing across the Cambridge housing sub-region. This page takes you to a list of the housing providers in our area with a page for each of our seven districts. On the district pages you can find a guide to the types of housing each provider owns and/or manages, and their websites.

The health and wellbeing network

Housing partners are a key supported of health and wellbeing and to help partners and residents understand the health and wellbeing network for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, have produced this diagram. As the structures and groups often change name and role, and new groups are added, this diagram is never "finished" so we welcome any feedback and suggestions if you notice things missing or changes that need to be made. Please email sue.beecroft@cambridge.gov.uk with any suggestions.

Local Enterprise Partnerships

There are two Local Enterprise Partnerships which are active across the Cambridge housing sub-region: there are Greater Cambridge-Greater Peterborough LEP and New Anglia LEP.

Information sharing framework

Cambridgeshire County Council's information sharing framework is available here. Cover of Cambs information sharing framework

The Framework aims to create a positive culture of sharing information and facilitate more effective data sharing practice across the county with the aim of improving service delivery. The Framework applies to all information being shared by partner organisations and it will establish the types of data we will share, how we handle data and the legislation which allows us to do so.

The ethos of the Framework is for partners to share information in all situations to improve service delivery and resident outcomes and to support safeguarding in Cambridgeshire, except where it would be illegal to do so.

Other partners

Many group and networks are detailed on the "partners" page under each of our four priorities. Here are some quick links:

If you know of other groups or networks who should "connect in", please do get in touch, initially with sue.beecroft@cambridge.gov.uk who will be very happy to help.
