How can innovative forms of commissioning and effective cross-sector collaboration improve outcomes at local levels?

Background

It is important for the directorate to put in place evidence-led policies and regulations that support the organisations across its sectors (charities, youth organisations, and social enterprises) so that they can flourish and respond to new challenges. CSY is keen to understand new perspectives and evidence on innovative financing and investment. The directorate is sensitive to understanding contexts, spaces and places in order to ensure levelling up and pride in place across all regions actively tackling regional disparities.
