Local Strategic Partnerships (LSPs) are a way of bringing together local people , including public sector organisations, voluntary and community organisations, and business to work to improve the quality of local life. They aim to improve how local services are planned and delivered. This report looks at the shortage of women in LSPs, especially in senior bodies, as well as the lack of monitoring which masks the problem, and the absence of specific support to shift the balance. It makes recommendations for systematic monitoring, specific support for women, and use of the Public Sector Duty on Gender Equality to improve service delivery.
