The council's ethos is to maximise "impact through partnerships" and ensure it is responsive to local needs. Strategic and service partnerships have a significant role to play in meeting the objective of what the council aspires to as an organisation - namely an effective, modern council that works with, and is valued by, the local community.

Who are the council's strategic partners?

The Herefordshire Partnership

Herefordshire Partnership comprises representatives from local and regional organisations.

Herefordshire Partnership is led by an Executive Group (HPEG), which also has responsibility for the statutory function of the Community Safety Partnership.

Other areas of work include:
