A strict division between private, public and the voluntary sector has always felt artificial to me and partly driven by ideology rather than evidence. Collaborate plays a key part in bridging this gap to realise synergies, making a significant contribution to solving some of our most persistent social challenges. I’m honored to be able to play my part.”
