From Providers to Partners: What Will It Take?

Collaborate launched a new report, co-published with the Coalition for Care and Support Providers in Scotland (CCPS). This report, co-authored by Dr Henry Kippin and Rory Swinson Reid, examines the question of how to shift relationships between commissioners and providers into the territory of real collaboration. The answer includes a mixture of practical action, changes in culture and behaviour, and a willingness to work with each other in different ways. Over 50 leaders from across the Scottish voluntary, public and business sectors in Scotland were interviewed for this research.

The report was released at CCPS’s annual conference on the 26th of November.
