A unique approach to voluntary sector service delivery through partnerships and collaborations “The Adsetts Partnership is about voluntary sector organisations working together in a much more effective, joined up way to provide new types of services to meet changing social needs. Our vision is that we are stronger together.” Sir Norman Adsetts O.B.E.
Small and medium sized voluntary sector organisations often have closer relationships to the communities they serve. In this changing climate these organisations may struggle to compete with the larger voluntary sector organisations for service delivery contracts. They can also lose out because of the ‘silo effect’ - commissioners do not want to engage with a wide range of single service providers.
The Adsetts Partnership is a not for profit organisation that brings voluntary sector agencies together in collaborations to ensure a more holistic offering for the groups we support. It also markets directly to commissioners on behalf of these organisations to deliver benefits via larger contracts whilst ensuring that economy of scale, financial clout, geographical spread and diversity of provision still apply.
