What we do

Sector Led Improvement

Working closely with the LGA and other sector support networks, IEWM provides a focus for SLI activities on behalf of all local authorities within the West Midlands.

Adult Social Care

IEWM works closely with WM ADASS and has a Joint Improvement Programme that provides support to councils in the region through a sector led approach.

Children's Services

IEWM & WM ADCS work together to deliver a Regional Improvement Plan and develop public services for children and young people.

Transformation and Innovation

Our role is to work on behalf of the sector to help stimulate and influence new thinking and innovation and encourage engagement in new ways of working.

Commissioning and Procurement

We support public sector partners to work collaboratively to grow a broad level of knowledge and understanding around the strategic agenda, using, wherever possible, resources that are already out there.

Health and Wellbeing

We collaborate with health partners and local government services that have an impact on the health and wellbeing of residents across the region.
