Gwent Regional Collaborative Committee

The role of Regional Collaborative Committees within the Supporting People Programme. 

Regional Collaborative Committees (RCCs) make recommendations to the Welsh Government on Supporting People spending in their region.  

They are informed by information provided by individual local authorities.  RCCs are advisory only and do not have executive powers or finance. 

RCCs bring key stakeholders together from across each region including local authorities, health, probation, Supporting People service providers and landlords.  This ensures that planning and commissioning of Supporting People services makes the most effective use of Supporting People Programme Grant and meets local needs. 

The Gwent Regional Collaborative Committee is made up from the areas of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen Local Authorities. 

There are 6 RCCs across Wales:  

  • The Vale and Cardiff
  • Gwent
  • Mid and West
  • Western Bay
  • Cwm Taf
  • North Wales

The Supporting People Programme Grant Guidance (Wales) describes the role of RCCs in more detail (pages 14 - 19).
