To bring public, private and third sector organisations together through a common goal: to rethink and reimagine how public services are delivered.
Public services are best delivered by the communities they serve. We’re building a better society by helping commissioners design services and processes differently and supporting ventures to start-up, grow and win funding.
The team, led by Chief Executive Chris Catterall and Chair Christopher Graham, has a brief to challenge traditional practices and give VCSE providers and communities a chance to shape public services themselves. This could be addressing frustrations with current procurement and delivery models, making more imaginative use of resources, or offering our skills, expertise, and practical financial knowledge to develop VCSE providers. Our imagination can bring huge benefits and huge savings.
Ultimately, our vision is a culture of collaboration, where commissioners, investors, companies and not-for-profit groups work together to achieve more with less and instigate significant change – creating solutions to achieve the very best results and the most sustainable value, across all of our public services. Through this we want everybody to have a good place to live, a purpose and good people around them to offer support.
