Collaboration and its Impact

Collaboration is being seen more and more as a means to achieving greater efficiency, effectiveness and impact for the third sector. It also coincides with a growing policy interest in the third sector as a provider of public services as public sector cuts continue, and as an agent of civic engagement and local democratic renewal.

In this context, the focus of the conference will look at where collaboration works and why; what are some of the key factors that enable collaboration across third, public and private sectors; what are the pros and cons of collaboration that leads to greater local impact and what are the tools and resources required to make it happen, in particular the sharing and use of data.

Purpose of the Conference:

  • To provide an overview of different forms and approaches to collaboration across third sector organisations at local and regional level.

  • Understanding how sharing data can support collaborative approaches across different stakeholder interests in maximizing local impact.

  • To explore through discussion what this could achieve for different stakeholders

Panel Speakers:

  • New Philanthropy Capital – Emma Cooper, Measurement & Evaluation, Research & Consulting, measuring impact from a collaborative approach

  • 360 Giving/Grantnav – Rachel Rank, CEO, sharing data as part of the process and impact of collaboration

  • Institute of Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) – Eliza Buckley, Research Manager, models and approaches to collaboration in and cross the Third Sector

There will also be local examples and representatives to lead on discussion workshops – sharing their experience and learning
