What is the Suffolk Information Partnership?
The Suffolk Information Partnership (SIP) was formed in 2010 by the five key voluntary sector organisations in Suffolk at the time and Suffolk County Council's Adult Social Care directorate. Now, it has expanded to include over 70 statutory, voluntary, and independent sector organisations all offering information and advice and delivering services to support people’s health and wellbeing in Suffolk.
The aim of the Partnership is to work together to provide clear, consistent, quality information to customers and the public and a seamless journey for those needing to access services.
The Partnership runs itself, holding regular meetings to exchange information on services and work on projects. It is also responsible for managing the Warm Handover Referral Scheme.
It is accountable to the Suffolk Collaborative Communities Board and Suffolk County Council’s Public Health Directorate Management Team.
