Partnerships Unite @ Christmas by Dorothy Jarvis-Lee

Following a most inspiring election campaign for our Enabler Partnership Representatives, everyone will have seen that we have renewed our ubu “Enabler Partnership”. Alongside this, we also introduced a new Partnership through similar elections for representatives of the people we are here to serve, called the “People’s Partnership Forum”.


The purpose and intention of both these working partnerships is to enable us all, through these very challenging health and social care times, to effectively develop and work together moving on a range of specific issues. Rachel Houghton, from the Society for Technical Communication has, I believe, provided us all with an eloquent definition:


“Partnerships are about relationships. The purpose of partnership is to achieve together what we could not achieve alone”


We believe that through a shared effort we can improve all aspects of our service, one that everyone will benefit from, and achieve, better and more sustainable results for all involved. Our aspiration and approach to partnerships at ubu with both those who work within, and those who the organisation serves, is to create a culture of mutual benefit through:

  • Commitment to the success of ubu for the safety and security of employment, development, sustainability and continuous service

  • Consistent improvement and quality of life

  • Openness and honesty

  • Added value in everything we do
