Research and Networks
Partnership Futures is a unique national partnership practitioners network, run by partnership practitioners for partnership practitioners. Its aims are to:
To provide a national partnership practitioner-based network to inform government strategy, policy and practice;
To provide a national network and voice for partnership practitioners and the benefits of collaborative working;
To learn from each other and what works through discussing, sharing and disseminating best practice.
It is an independent organisation that is driven by the membership and works with government and other national and regional organisations to influence and inform emerging policy ideas and develop effective ways of implementing them. The Strategic Partnerships Manager who supports the work of Southampton Connect is on the Steering Group for Partnership Futures.
