We have worked with a number of Local Authorities to help look at ways of improving services and managing increased service demands. We can help you with the following:
- Business Case for Change
- Options Appraisal (Alternative service delivery models)
- Mutuals Advisory Services
- Pre and Post Spin-out Support
- Stakeholder Engagement
- Co-production opportunities with the voluntary and community sector
- Income and Funding strategy
- Market Analysis
- Marketing and Brand Identity
- Specialist support: HR, Finance, Legal, Procurement
We recognise that you are accountable to a number of stakeholders ranging from internal staff and local politicians, to taxpayers and local communities. That is why we engage stakeholders across all levels to gain buy-in and build ownership from an early stage and to ensure that the solutions are fit-for-purpose.
Our Track Record
We are part of the Cabinet Office Mutuals Advisory Network, supporting the spin-out of services across various Local Authorities under the pioneering Mutuals Support Programme. Mutuals are formed by public servants who “spin out” from the public sector and deliver their service under contract. This means the staff can be more responsive to local people’s needs, provide a better service and reduce wasteful red-tape.
Our customers include:
- Sports Partnership Herefordshire & Worcestershire (SPHW)
- Dudley Libraries Archives and Adult Learning Services
- Newham Language Shop
- Warrington Youth Cafe
- Torbay Youth Trust
We have also successfully delivered projects under the Delivering Differently for Young People Programme that seeks to transform services for young people through new delivery models. This programme entails providing bespoke technical, legal and consultancy support to look at the full range of alternative delivery models that lie between in-house delivery and traditional outsourcing to build long-term service sustainability, and to then develop an implementation plan.
