A major new project aims to rebalance the relationship between large and small voluntary organisations in public services.
The project, known as ‘Rebalancing the Relationship’, aims to ‘look under the bonnet’ of current bidding and commissioning practices. A call for evidence to be launched in coming weeks will seek views from the sector. This evidence, combined with further desk-based and qualitative research, will form the basis of a research report expected in the autumn.
The work will be overseen by a small steering group made up of the project partners and individuals with expertise in leading both large and small voluntary organisations.
A wider advisory group will be asked to provide feedback and advice to the project, and the partners are also today asking those who would like to express an interest in joining the advisory group to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
