2021-2022 SE DCS Peer Challenge

The 2021-2022 Peer Challenge Cycle will take place in January and February 2022.

In this, our fourth year of operation, the groupings have been refreshed and we now have the opportunity to offer events either face to face or virtually, as participants prefer.

Our Lead Members supported by Alison Michalska of LGA (see below for contacts), will continue to provide scrutiny and challenge as each authority's self assessments are drafted and signed off.

We offer access to our growing library of the region’s self-assessments and the Peer Challenge data packs in the password-protected  Peer Challenge Library.

This has been set up as a resource for nominated participants to the 2021-2022 SESLI Programme DCS Peer Challenge cycle.

If you are a nominated participant and have yet to receive log in details, please contact Isabelle Gregory (details below).

Governance and planning

The South East DCS Peer Challenge is underpinned by the ethos and governance demonstrated through the 2021-2022 Memorandum of Understanding.
