Lessons from sector consortia providing public services

Five examples of sector collaboration in Norfolk, Gateshead, Knowsley, Leicestershire and the London Borough of Sutton have informed a new report produced by ACEVO, the body for charity chief executives, in partnership with the Local Government Association. Consortia of local charities and social enterprises were commissioned by local government for health, social care and children’s services, and demonstrated that they can be cost-effective and transform the quality of service citizens receive.
