Stockton Local Strategic Partnership

Stockton Local Strategic Partnership brings together the different parts of the public sector as well as private, business, community and voluntary sectors to work together to promote the vision of a 'A brighter Borough for All - Tackling Family Poverty in Stockton-on-Tees'.

Role and Function

Infinity Partnership

The Infinity Partnership was established in 2008 with an aim to ensure that everyone in Stockton-on-Tees has access to and ability to use financial services and debt- related advice to help them overcome disadvantage due to poverty or financial exclusion.

The partnership is the Financial Inclusion Forum for the Borough and is a group made up of service providers from the public, voluntary, community and private sectors, including Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council. Alongside its partners Infinity works on issues as diverse as bereavement poverty, fuel poverty as well as poverty linked to education.

Currently the partnership is working to reduce the potential negative impact of Universal Credit on the residents of Stockton-on-Tees and recently organised a Universal Credit conference to make sure services are better informed and prepared for the full service roll out of the new benefit. The partnership has also held briefings with each of the Borough’s four Locality Forums to keep them up to date about the changes.

One of the main focuses for the Infinity Partnership is to make sure that debt and money advice is made as easy as possible for people across the Borough to access.

Stockton and District Advice and Information Service (SDAIS) currently coordinates the partnership. For more information call Ian Bartlett or Emma Gordon at SDAIS on 01642 633877 or email [email protected] or [email protected].
