Roundtable Discussion – 20th September, 12.30pm – 1.45pm @ Tyndallwoods, 29 Woodbourne Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham B17 8BY following CTWM Executive Committee meeting.
Collaboration between funders has been explored over the years as has fostering collaboration between applicants. However, historically grant making approaches have promoted competition based on a view that this drives up quality and cost effectiveness. Interest in collaboration has grown of late as more funders realise that individual efforts may not be enough to address complex social problems, in a climate of reduced funding and public sector cuts. So what are effective approaches to promote collaboration? What has been the experience of different funders in fostering collaborative approaches? What is required to enable collaborative approaches to be developed? What can we learn from examples of collaboration and what is good practice? Max Rutherford, Barrow Cadbury Trust who manages the Criminal Justice Programme, will share his experience of taking collaborative approaches with other funders and grantees. A representative from the Big Lottery (tbc) will also join the discussion and share their change in approach which seeks to work more collaboratively with other funders.
Further information will be posted on this shortly.
