We offer consultancy and interim management to local authorities, other public and not-for-profit organisations and providers of public services. We specialise in change management and performance improvement, provide organisational diagnostics and benchmarking and have expertise in adult social care, regulatory services and corporate strategy..
We undertake international consultancy on public sector reform and have worked in Bangladesh, India, South Africa and Albania where we completed a Swedish funded project to improve the performance of local government. We also work in partnership with other organisations on social care and health and provide safeguarding audits and training.
In 2012 we supported Balfour Beatty to successfully bid for a large local authority contract and we provided the expert’ consultancy to develop the business case and implementation model for the merger of all the regulatory services in 5 northern metropolitan boroughs. We have been working with a not-for-profit Trust in bidding for a large Children’s Health Services contract in London; continue (after 3 years) to deliver all the adult safeguarding training for a north London borough; recently finished the development and management of a large change programme for an East London borough on innovative projects that will reduce the future demand for health and social care and have completed two projects for the States of Jersey in implementing new models of delivery for their health and social care services and developing pricing models for the implementation of their long term care benefit that will fund the long term care of all their population.
In the current climate – with the UK public sector contracting rapidly and likely to continue this way for many years – we have looked innovatively and how best to focus our consultancy in the immediate future. Subsequently, we have further developed our partnerships – old and new – and have successfully looked outside the UK for new opportunities. We joined with Insight Management Solutions to deliver a National Skills Academy qualification programme providing management training to graduate trainees who are moving into Adult Social Care and are working with some local authorities on the integration of health and social care.
