ecdp has a pro-active relationship with a range of organisations across the public, voluntary and private sectors
Our partnerships help us to offer ecdp members access to the best possible resources. By working with organisations from other sectors we can ensure that the solutions and services we offer are relevant and meaningful to everyone.
In September 2014, ecdp celebrated its strategic partnership with American consultancy firm Public Consulting Group, Inc. PCG is focused on supporting public sector organisations to effectively manage their financial and business ventures. Working with ecdp, PCG will introduce their methods and technologies to the UK social and health care sectors, to enhance our work day to day.
The ecdp Works project (formerly Essex Unite) is a ground-breaking partnership with private sector company MITIE. As one of the UK’s largest and most innovative companies, MITIE puts people at the forefront of its many operations in the facilities management, property maintenance and energy sectors. It is no surprise that MITIE showed no hesitation in teaming up with ecdp to launch ecdp Works
ecdp has worked closely with Essex County Council for a number of years. During this time, our focus has been to add value to the Council’s own service provision, as well as offering our own distinct services – such as payroll – to disabled people referred to us by Essex County Council. In addition, we often run bespoke projects to support clear communications for disabled people in Essex, including the Right to Control film project and the Journey project.
In addition to asking ecdp to contribute actively in the policy making arena, the DWP has seconded key staff to ecdp to enable us to develop and implement ambitious programme such as Essex Unite. By providing this sort of practical input, the DWP is making a valuable contribution to building the core strength of ecdp as a service provider with a difference.
We are part of a partnership with iSEssex alongside Interact, FACE and Families in Focus. iSEssex supports families and young people as they move from the old educational statements to Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). ecdp's role within this partnership is to recruit, train and coordinate Independent Supporter Volunteers who support the rest of the partnership as they work with families.
