People First Alliance

The People First Alliance is an alliance between the three Building Better Opportunities projects in D2N2. The three projects are:

  • Money Sorted in D2N2 (Financial Inclusion – led by St Ann’s Advice for Advice Nottingham)
  • Towards Work (led by Groundwork Greater Nottingham)
  • Opportunity & Change (Multiple and Complex Needs -led by Framework)


These three lead organisations formed an alliance at the bidding stage in order to be able to act as a strategic and overarching partnership in the delivery of the Building Better Opportunities Programme in the D2N2 area – with five key principles: Personalisation, Added Value, Coordination, Portable Personal Budgets, Effective Data Sharing and Integrated Performance Monitoring.  Coordinated and integrated delivery through the Alliance offers a key step towards the BBO principle – ‘lead to better coordinated services’ within D2N2.

Each of the three projects stand alone, but the People First Alliance enables learning and best practice to be shared and assists stakeholders by providing coordination between the three strands of the Building Better Opportunities Programme.
