Annual Performance Report 2018/19

The Annual Performance Report sets out how we have delivered on our vision and strategic commitments over the reporting period 2018/19. This covers the first year of our current 3 year Strategic Plan. The report provides relevant performance and financial information as well as real-life examples and case studies of the work we have been undertaking over the year.

Our Strategic Plan 2018-21 sets out our vision for "Working together with the people of East Renfrewshire to improve lives" and our seven strategic priorities to support:

  • community justice outcomes and reduced offending; 
  • reduced health inequalities;
  • greater independence at home;
  • support for people experiencing mental ill-health;
  • reduced unplanned admissions to hospital;
  • support for unpaid carers.
