Transfer of London Climate Change Partnership



I have approved the transfer of the accountable body role for the LCCP from the GLA to the Environment Agency from 01 April 2010. I have also approved the transfer its funds held by the GLA to be held by Environment Agency from 01 April 2010.


I have agreed to provide £30,000 funding from the Environment Programme Budget to the LCCP towards the delivery of the LCCP work programme in 2010-11. I have also agreed to provide a hotdesk for the LCCP Partnership Manager at City Hall for up to 2 days per week, to continue to host the LCCP website, and to provide suitable venues for 5 LCCP Steering Group meetings and 1 Annual Forum per year.


Recycle for London contracts


I have delegated authority to the Executive Director of Development & Environment and to the Assistant Director of Transport & Environment, and in consultation with the Assistant Director of London Engagement and the Executive Director of Resources, to enter into contracts with suppliers, and procure necessary services in accordance with the GLA’s Contracts and Funding Code and the approval decisions made by the Recycle for London Steering Group and within the limits of the GLA’s Recycle for London budget.This is in addition to the decisions made in MD503 approving the Recycle for London programme.


Social Inclusion and Health

Early Parenting Support in London



On 14 February, my Advisor for Health & Youth Opportunities, Pam Chesters, chaired a Roundtable on early parenting support in London. The event brought together leading providers from the parenting sector, borough representatives, researchers and academics to discuss how the GLA can add value to existing work in this area.


This work takes forward actions within my Health Inequalities Strategy and, in particular, builds on the recognition of the critical importance of parenting in the early years for developing children’s emotional, intellectual and behavioural capabilities.


Discussion focused on the need to build a stronger evidence base on what works in parenting support particularly in relation to improving early literacy, the role of volunteers and social media and how best the GLA can support existing work with parents to improve outcomes for children in London.

Economic modelling for early intervention programmes



On 2 March, my Children and Young People’s Unit hosted a roundtable for boroughs, the NHS and MPS to share information on work by the Dartington Social Research Unit to translate an economic model developed in the US to inform investment decisions in relation to children and young people’s services in the UK. The model draws on robustly evidenced prevention and early intervention programmes to establish the long term social and financial benefits of different interventions.


The event was attended by a range of local authorities involved in Early Intervention and Community Budget pilots together with NHS London and the MPS and sought to ensure that the model takes account of London-specific issues, such as frequent movement and high levels of complex need.


Phase One of this work, to test the feasibility and design the product, is being funded by Birmingham and Manchester City Councils together with the GLA. The final product will be freely available software that can be used to assist local and regional commissioners of services to calculate the costs and benefits of investing in a range of evidenced based programmes. This activity is closely linked to work with the Graham Allen Independent Review to support local agencies on how best the recommendations can be taken forward in London.

Literacy in London



On 3 March, my Advisor Pam Chesters chaired an event with local authority, voluntary and charity organisations to explore how the GLA can support existing activity in London to promote the importance of literacy. This work will have a particular focus on under 5s and their families.


The meeting discussed several areas including the potential key messages for families and the importance of embedding these with activity which is already taking place in the boroughs. The group also discussed the role of the GLA, and next steps for taking this work forward with partners. Participants were very positive about the value that GLA involvement in this area could have.
