18/05/09: London Borough of Barking and Dagenham (LBBD)
Barking and Dagenham is reforming the way it designs and delivers services for residents through the 'One Barking and Dagenham' programme.
As Chief Executive Rob Whiteman puts it, "What One B&D gives residents is a holistic approach to services – we provide a range of services to customers together rather than individually. This means we need to innovate and join services up where appropriate. For example when a domestic violence incident is reported; then the Police, paramedic,
social worker and domestic support officer all turn up and work together to
help the person, rather than individually."
