Support for front line public sector teams

We know that a lot of front line teams are experiencing significant budget cuts yet have rising numbers of service users who have increasingly high expectations and demands. To help maintain quality and put services on a sustainable long-term footing, many teams are  considering whether they are utilising the best delivery model.

We will help you to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your current service, find the best delivery model, and then support you to transition to that new model. Where necessary we work with legal, accountancy and marketing partners to ensure your transition is a success.

Potential models include:

  • An enhanced in-house service with increased levels of commercial discipline
  • A public sector owned trading company
  • A joint venture with an independent organisation or another public body
  • A staff/service user led public service mutual (often called ‘spinning out’)

If you are ready for change, we can help you to decide which delivery model would be most suitable for your service.

You may want to get start immediately by using our Delivery Model Detector (link below). This easy-to-use tool will help you get an initial feel for which model might be best for your service. However, this is only an initial step – there is a much more thorough process to help you make a well-informed final decision.
