Questions from Community Care – Are Partnerships Worth It?

Are partnerships worth it?

By Jon Glasby

* What outcomes are local partnerships designed to achieve (and do you and your partners all agree on these)?
* Who are these outcomes intended to benefit, and would service users list the same desired outcomes if you asked them?
* How will you know if these outcomes have been achieved?
* How can you monitor against these outcomes over time?
In many ways, these more detailed questions ask us to take a step back from current partnerships and ask two more fundamental things:
* What would success look like and how would we know?
* If partnership working is the answer, what’s the question?

GUIDE TIME FOR DISCUSSION: 20-30 minutes per question
