“Collaborate is pushing at the boundaries between sectors and silos in all the work we do. It’s about improving outcomes for citizens, but also about making a positive and radical case for strong services to the public.

Leading change is more complex than it ever was, but we are proud to be supporting people who are doing it in practice.”
