To deliver outcomes that help people dependent on really effective public services is not easy given that money is tighter, issues are more complex and arguably all the easy tasks have been completed already. For me Collaborate is important; no one has all the solutions, the people receiving services often know best what is needed and usually some else has ‘been there’ before. Many organisations spend time and money solving problems for the second and third time around. Collaborate, I believe, is different and I am delighted to play a small part in it.
