About the session

From supporting individuals facing homelessness to supporting children from disadvantaged backgrounds and preventing re-offending, a core challenge for the provision of services to individuals with multiple, complex needs is the acute fragmentation of social services.

We know that these vulnerable individuals are frequently failed, leading to poor life outcomes and inefficiencies in spending, but what approaches are available to help shift service provision from fragmentation to effective collaboration?

What kind of funding models can unlock more holistic, person-centred approaches for these public services? How can we move from measuring outputs to outcomes? Where are the examples of best practice?

In this session we will look at pioneering research and real-life examples to answer these very questions.

Participant takeaways:

  • Access evidence and practical insights from a pioneering social outcomes partnership on effective ways to overcome fragmentation in the delivery of public services
  • Explore the innovative approach of an ecosystem orchestrator as a tool to strengthen public service delivery
  • Learn about how pioneering techniques of social outcomes partnerships can incentivise cross-sector collaboration
  • Have an interactive discussion learning from one another about best practices, barriers people have experienced, and opportunities for application
