Working closely with the LGA and other sector support networks, IEWM provides a focus for SLI activities on behalf of all local authorities within the West Midlands.
IEWM works closely with WM ADASS and has a Joint Improvement Programme that provides support to councils in the region through a sector led approach.
IEWM & WM ADCS work together to deliver a Regional Improvement Plan and develop public services for children and young people.
Our role is to work on behalf of the sector to help stimulate and influence new thinking and innovation and encourage engagement in new ways of working.
We support public sector partners to work collaboratively to grow a broad level of knowledge and understanding around the strategic agenda, using, wherever possible, resources that are already out there.
We collaborate with health partners and local government services that have an impact on the health and wellbeing of residents across the region.
IEWM is currently consulting upon and considering options for the future delivery of the IEWM Programme, recognising both the challenges and opportunities for the Programme in the context of the substantially changing operating environment for the sector (devolution, health integration etc.).Read More

IEWM is currently consulting upon and considering options for the future delivery of the IEWM Programme, recognising both the challenges and opportunities for the Programme in the context of the substantially changing operating environment for the sector (devolution, health integration etc.). We are looking to explore and pursue options that could secure the future sustainability of the IEWM Programme (or elements of it), potentially to at least 2020 if the right solutions can be found. In doing so, we are seeking to explore a combination of options that would not only enable the ongoing sustainability of the IEWM programme but would also bring in valuable resources, capability, knowledge and capacity from a range of partners as we move forward. To help inform our future direction, we are keen to speak with as many of our stakeholders as possible and to test out the appetite of the sector and potential partners in respect of the potential options available. If you would like to find out more please read our consultation paper and if you are interested in speaking to a member of the IEWM team to let us have your views then please get in touch with SBanks@westmidlandsiep.gov.uk .
