Mr Andrews,As co ordinator, I am writing a response from Cwmaman Communities First Partnership to the announcement of the exetension of the Jobmatch programme which I read about in this morning's western Mail & on your Blog. The announcement is good news for areas such as our where worklessness is a key issue. Last month the Partnership in Cwmaman gave consideration to the Com Next Consulation & have taken on board that they are expected to make a "significant contribution" towards tackling issues such as Child Poverty & Entrprise. This month they have considered the Annual Monitoring report & set targets for this finanacial year. My comment regarding the announcement is to ask whether it is possible to communicate more effectively to the on the ground Patnerships in Communities First, what WAG is doing to support their work? The expectations on the Partnerships are clearly high & I reassurance that WAG values those efforts important. Being invited to a launch event of a programme or sent a press realease (when appropriate) would make a Parnership feel valued and informed & would get the message across of the godd work that WAG is doing to introduce & bend programmes.RegardsAmanda orrell, on behalf of Cwmaman Communities First

Thanks Amanda. I will discuss this with officials as I did not see the full invitation list to the event. It was a Heads of the Valleys programme event specifically, rather than a Communities First programme event, of course, but I understand the point you are making.If you email me at leighton.andrews (AT) wales.gsi.gov.uk I will make sure you get a full reply.
