Here at the Collective Impact Agency, we believe in the power of people working together to improve lives by making the system work better.
We believe that the best way to make the system work better for people and communities is to help organisations work better together.
Our partnerships are a huge part of that. Through our partnerships, we aim to facilitate and achieve large scale social change, bringing cross-sector organisations together to build and deliver a common agenda that results in long-lasting, widespread improvement.
Here are our current partners:
Human Learning Systems Collaborative
Human Learning Systems argues for the need to take an alternative approach to public management, championed by Dr Toby Lowe from Northumbria University and Collaborate CIC. This alternative approach embraces the complexity of the real world, centres on the importance of working with people, listening and understanding what matters to them, focuses on operating at a systemic level, and puts learning at the heart of everything.
A dozen organisations across the UK who believe in this approach have come together in 2020 to form the HLS Collaborative. This group works together to champion this different way of working and help others adapt their structures and activities. We are thrilled to be part of this group.
Lankelly Chase Foundation
Believing in a society where everyone has the opportunity to live a rewarding life where they’re able to thrive, Lankelly Chase work in partnership with people, across the UK, to change the systems that perpetuate severe and multiple disadvantage.
Through action inquiries into the changes that are needed, they aim to create the conditions within which system behaviours can be tested, understood and promoted.
Next Stage Radicals
The Next Stage Radicals is an open learning community comprised of people and organisations with a passion to make work better. This community of practice comes together to share together. learn together, and share what they are learning to help the wider public learn with them.
Gateshead Community Bridgebuilders
The Gateshead Community Bridgebuilders want local people to have the opportunities, skills, and confidence to engage in making decisions that are going to improve their lives now and in the future. They are building new participative models of community decision-making - changing and extending who gets to participate in decision-making, and changing the ways in which decisions are made and power is exercised - and supporting local people to feel confident enough to be part of them.
We are proud to be one of the coordinators of the Bridgebuilders.
If you are interested in developing a partnership with us, then please do not hesitate to reach out and get in touch. We truly believe in the power of a networked approach in order to improve the lives of those in our communities.
