New members for Supporting Partnerships


The support service that helps partnerships with local authorities has added two new members as associates.

Somerset Waste Partnership managing director Steve Read and finance director Martin Gerrish have joined the team.


Supporting Partnerships co-founder Jane Beasley said: “Steve and Martin will bring many years of real-time local authority experience to bear on some of the real challenges that face councils as they seek to take their partnerships to new levels and work more efficiently in the current climate of achieving more with less.”

The Supporting Partnerships initiative was founded by Jane Beasley and new Resource Association chief executive Ray Georgeson and is designed to help local authorities develop partnerships to share expertise.
