Ahead of his appearance at NPC Ignites, Duncan Shrubsole, Director of Policy Communications and Research at Lloyds Bank Foundation argues that talk of mergers in the social sector is detracting from the value of collaboration.
New research has revealed the scale of the problem in local government finances in the most disadvantaged areas of the country. Is it time for the social sector to come together in a coalition for change to help tackle this looming crisis—and prevent it from happening again?
Our research has found many positives for charities from mergers but they're not always appropriate. Thinking about when they aren't helps us to understand the range of collaboration options that are available to charities.
NPC has been working with the Maddox Group of CEOs of NHS charities. Our work with them points towards both the value that these charities have in themselves and lessons for others in the voluntary sector who want to work with the NHS and understand their impact.
The NHS has always been supported, in one way or another, by charities. Now, as we face a rising tide of conditions whose origins lie in social issues of loneliness, inactivity and the like, Iona Joy, NPC Head of Charities, argues the two sectors should formalise their alliance.
