Collaboration and Partnerships
Have you considered how working with others could achieve better outcomes for the people you serve?
At SVA, we believe an effective social sector organisation is aware of their place in the ecosystem and alive to the opportunities that exist beyond its walls to deepen their impact.
Collaboration can take many forms, depending on what you want to achieve and the parties involved. It can be anything from informal working arrangements, to service delivery consortiums, place-based initiatives, all the way up to mergers.
SVA Consulting has supported our clients along the full spectrum of collaborative activities to help them accelerate their vision for positive social change. Our team can work with you on ecosystem and stakeholder mapping, potential partner screening, business case development, due diligence, negotiation and implementation. Knowing your strengths is key to success, but so too is being able to recognise the strengths of others.
