New opportunities for civil society as public services are opened up.
This document is a stocktake of progress toward the Coalition Government commitment to ‘… support the creation and expansion of mutuals, co-operatives, charities and social enterprises, and enable these groups to have much greater involvement in the running of public services’.
In this paper, we focus on:
- New opportunities for civil society, as public services are opened up
- Working with commissioners to ensure that new contract opportunities are as open as possible
- Helping the sector become more competitive in this emerging landscape
