A need to deliver more with limited resources and a desire to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort have been two key drivers behind this shift. A move from grants towards contracting is also leading towards a greater emphasis on collaboration.
Whilst this can offer great benefits to your organisation and your service users it is not without risk and can raise a number of challenges.

Here we provide some resources on the topic to help you consider or prepare for partnership working:
