A message from David Bishop, ADEPT President 2014/15

“To me, the need for ADEPT as an inclusive organisation for Strategic Place Directors across the length and breadth of the UK has never been stronger, particularly in the context of the UK economic recovery from recession, the emergence of LEPs and the single Growth Deals. 

 For Local Authorities, the role of Place based services in transforming local communities for the benefit of local people is vital. In showcasing what we do, influencing the future government on policy, and providing information, advice, and indeed a supportive network, ADEPT is an invaluable resource.

 ADEPT can provide a unique voice in the ear of Government occupying as we do, a privileged position managing a whole range of linked professional services, at the crucial interface between Local Authority, LEP and Government.”

David Bishop, ADEPT President 2014/15
