beardThis project was initiated by the Partnership Brokers Association in July 2016 and has been developed in close collaboration with four other partner since that date. Each partner’s lead representative (see names in bold below) work together as the governance group to oversee the project’s development, delivery and finances.

It is fundamental to this enquiry that we undertake it as a partnership in order to:

  • Bring the richest experience, widest range of questions and new thinking to the task
  • Be able to access different networks of practitioners and diverse types of partnership both as sources of information and as potential testers of innovative approaches
  • Build from first hand experience of the constraints and opportunities of working remotely in order to inform our exploration from our shared experience
  • Share the risks and responsibilities for: resource procurement; delivering agreed outcomes & outputs and evolving a long-term, self-sustaining capacity-strengthening programme
