A Real Commitment to Partnership? Building a New Relationship between the Council and Voluntary Sector in Islington
This paper discusses the future relationship between the voluntary organisations in Islington and Islington Council. In particular, it makes proposals for a new partnership between the organisations, something that all sides have stated that they are interested in constructing, and something which we believe could bring major benefits, especially to Islington’s citizens.
The paper sets out:
- The agendas for change of central government, Islington Council and the local voluntary sector.
- The case (and need) for partnership.
- The essential elements of an effective partnership.
- The barrier to future partnerships.
- Proposed next steps.
