Impact of our work

Every year we publish our Annual Report where we update the community on progress with our Strategic Plan as well as our financial performance.

The report also showcases the impact of the work we do and the difference this makes to the people of Letchworth Garden City.  And we give an overview of our priorities in the year ahead.

Everything we do is linked to three objectives set out in our Strategic Plan:

  • Improve life chances 

  • Make Letchworth a great place to live 

  • Make Letchworth a great place to work and do business

From these, we aim to deliver a range of outcomes for our community, which we monitor throughout the year.

Improve life chances

  • Create a cultural education offer for every child to develop their skills and confidence by learning about the town’s special heritage

  • Enhance people’s wellbeing by increasing levels of physical activity and community engagement

  • Enable everyone to take advantage of our arts, culture, leisure and wellbeing services

  • Develop and implement a Letchworth families programme to enhance levels of development amongst children and young people
