Building Collaborative Places explores the nine essential pieces of system infrastructure for leaders of statutory and non-statutory services. These ‘building blocks’ will help embed whole-system collaboration to improve outcomes and the sustainability of services.
The report draws on a year of action research in Greater Manchester, the West Midlands and the South East. It offers system leaders a framework to reboot strategic partnerships and change the culture of collaboration across services to the public in a place.
