TPS marks the 10th Anniversary of the Christie Report

To mark the 10th Anniversary of the Christie Report – the recommendations that came from the Commission on the Future Delivery of Public Services, chaired by Dr. Campbell Christie, published on the 29th June 2011 – our Policy Officer Faye Keogh considers the impact of the report and what this can mean for us now.

Looking back over 10 years since Christie


Although I was 2 years into my job with TPS, it’s fair to say that I was still finding my feet when the Christie report was published in June 2011. 

I’d come from a disability organisation, used to sitting in one ‘policy area’ and considering issues of equality, service design and effectiveness through that lens.  Now I was trying – and struggling – to do the same with homelessness, alcohol and other drugs and justice, as well as disability. 

The Christie review helped me to think of all this in a different way.  It considered the future of public services as a whole, across the board, not in the narrow and segregated way that I’d got used to.  In doing so it identified four key objectives that should underpin the reform programme; to me, these read as the four basic standards that we should expect from our public services.
