Cafe on Partnerships
By La Toyah McAllister-Jones , January 2014
La Toyah McAllister-Jones wanted to explore the relationships and behaviours that contribute partnership working at a local level within the homelessness sector and other key stakeholders. Whilst partnerships are key to delivering much of the work being done for socially excluded groups, in practice it is difficult to do. La Toyah explored some of the key changes needed to facilitate change and improve outcomes to beneficiaries.
To develop the project, La Toyah used a range of collaborative methods (round tables, World Café method) to work with a range of key service providers to develop a ’Good Partners Charter’; a framework for building effective partnerships at an individual organisational, sector-wide level.
Homeless Link, HACT, Equinox Brighton and Hove, London Borough of Hackney and RECLAIM are just some of the stakeholders who contributed to the project and the development of the Charter.
