Demand management - Case studies - Coventry City Council: Meeting resourcing challenges by managing demand over the longer term

Demand management

Using this insight the council is now pursuing two complementary approaches to co-designing and developing their relationships with communities and other public service partners to meet the resourcing challenges ahead. One approach is "bottom-up" and the other "top-down" through empowering its citizens.
