Organisations whose primary purpose is social, but who operate outside the public sector, are playing an increasing role in meeting needs around health and social care, culture and wellbeing, and education. Like public sector organisations, their primary measures of success related to creating social and public value and not simply financial value. The social sector is also the source of some of the most important innovations in delivering public services.
Charities we work with like Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie and the Forces in Mind Trust are leading the way in terms of new models and pathways of social care, and in how they approach innovation itself. Our expertise in both the social and local government sectors is key to enabling us to provide advice and insight on how these two sectors work in partnership and learn from each other.
