The Sponsorship Specialism is the specialist group for sponsors of arm’s-length bodies (ALBs).

Sponsors bring together policy and delivery skills with expertise in sponsorship processes, to support sponsored bodies in being accountable, high-performing organisations, delivering value for money services as outlined in their business plan and supporting the parent department in achieving its objectives.
