NLGN and Collaborate launched a major new commission imagining the future of place-based health. Chaired by Lord Victor Adebowale, the Commission will tackle the most challenging questions facing both the NHS and local councils today as they struggle with rising demand, reducing budgets and the changing demographics of their service users.
Collaborate is an independent CIC focusing on the thinking, culture and practice of cross-sector collaboration in services to the public.
We care about outcomes and values, not sectors
Our work actively promotes services to the public that engage government, business and civil society, blurring traditional boundaries and prioritising outcomes over sector preconceptions
We support collaborative citizens
Our starting point is the voice of the citizen, family and community, and our approach will always look for ways to support their capability, independence and resilience.
We work with people who want genuine collaboration
Our clients and partners are people who want to collaborate to deliver better outcomes – we help them to make it happen through different thinking, culture and practice
We offer honest relationships, not pre-baked solutions
Our way of working is different – we believe that the best approaches are co-created; we work hard to convene networks, broker relationships and be ‘comfortable with uncomfortable’
We build readiness and unlock capacity
Our approach is to enable others to find their own solutions; we use independent evidence and diagnostic insight, then build capability in others to make delivery sustainable

In an article published in this week’s MJ, Anna Randle argues that the RSA’s Inclusive Growth Commission should address the role of public services in creating a more inclusive society and economy - the pre-conditions which will enable the value of more obvious economic inclusion priorities, such as connectivity and skills agendas, to be realised.
