Case study on the successful restructuring of Rosebud SRB which enabled a once ailing partnership to get back on track.
Despite early successes in its programme of regeneration Rosebud
had begun to lose track of its contractual obligations. There was
confusion in the governance structure and membership of the groups
as well as obscure responsibilities and overlapping services. A
mid-term review highlighted these issues and pointed to the need
Rosebud SRB, a partnership of voluntary and statutory agencies,
was created to guide regeneration efforts in: Ludlow and Craven
Arms, beginning with the Sandpits Estate in Ludlow, Shropshire.
Early successes were followed by a period of confusion and duplication in the partnership structure. A series of meetings to clarify matters resulted in an effective regrouping enabling Rosebud SRB to get back on track.
A series of meetings were held with Board members and project
leaders to clarify roles and responsibilities, review funding
requirements and set realistic targets for output delivery. An air
of clarity, enthusiasm, motivation and determination was felt
throughout Rosebud and giving the programme a new lease of life.
Since restructuring, Rosebud SRB continues to meet or exceeded
all of their annual targets. The programme has also become a highly
regarded and valued member of local regeneration partnerships, seen
as an organisation that is able to run a successful programme while
meeting the needs and fulfilling the wishes of the community.
