Our Purpose and Priorities

Our Purpose

Our Council Purpose is to ensure Doncaster and its people thrive, whilst ensuring value for money is at the heart of everything we do. 

Our Priorities

A new Corporate Plan has been agreed for 2017/18 which marks the next stage in the Council’s improvement journey.   It has 4 priority themes:

The Plan emphasises the ways of working which need to run through the Council’s work to create more jobs and growth, tackle inequalities and further modernise services – but with less resources.   For example:  

  • Achieving inclusive growth
  • Improving the quality and effectiveness of support for the most vulnerable
  • A major shift to prevention and early intervention to reduce the demand on services and costs
  • Harnessing community strengths, collaboration and assets to build community resilience
  • A whole person, whole life focus

Crucially, it places a greater emphasis on driving the delivery of the actions that will have the greatest impact on Doncaster and the lives of residents.
