Catch up on our webinar - Building bridges between central and local government

We held a webinar on Tuesday 21st September on ‘Building Bridges Between Central And Local Government’.


Delivery of government programmes relies on the skills, knowledge, and cooperation of different levels of government. To be successful, they need effective facilitation, mediation, and translation - to create trusting and productive relationships between partners. This is what we term ‘bridge-building’.

  • What are the key differences between central and local government that require bridge-building?

  • What can we learn about bridge-building from Mutual Venture’s experience of programmes working with central and local government?

  • What skills are required in a bridge-builder and what should you look for when designing a programme?
