The Commissioning Body (CB) is chaired by the council's Assistant Director of Housing and drives the programme through providing leadership, developing strategy, making decisions and monitoring progress to ensure that Supporting People services are making a positive impact on people's lives.
The Commissioning Body consists of one voting member from each of the three equal partners:
Council for the London Borough of Islington
London Probation Trust
Although more than one representative of each partner agency may attend, only one vote will be held by each partner and each vote will have equal weight. Membership of the CB will only be extended to additional parties where each of the three partner agencies is able to agree that this does not alter the essential equality of the partnership.
The CB has representation from the council's Finance section and Children's Services to broaden its knowledge and expertise.
