Public service reform
& social investment
Shared Lives

Public services are forever evolving. In the current time of austerity, change is required at an even greater pace, and the opportunity is presented to do things better. 

Charities and social enterprises are prepared to deliver. Commissioners are seeking greater value for money from providers.  Social investment can be the catalyst to support both parties to achieve the shared goal of more positive outcomes for people in the UK.

We have chosen to prioritise the following activities in 2016.

Charities and social enterprises

Supporting charities and social enterprises to compete on a level playing field in public sector markets

Local commissioners

Helping commissioners engage with social investment

Outcomes contracts and Social impact bonds

Raising awareness of the role social impact bonds and outcomes contracts can play in public service reform
