Better way projects and related initiatives
We published Insights for A Better Way in July 2018 and now have a number of exciting Better Way projects underway:
Greater in Bentley, which is part of our Better Way network, and is producing its own magazine.
The informal think tank in Surrey which is seeking to make lives better for children and young people, led by our Better Way member, Cate Newnes-Smith.
Measuring collective impact under a Better Way, a project starting to take shape and led by our members Bethia McNeil and Matt Kepple.
We also draw strength and inspiration from the many related initiatives which are breaking new ground, led by our members. These include:
The Government’s Civil Society Strategy, led by our founding member Danny Kruger.
The Civil Society Futures report, led by our Insights contributor, Julia Unwin, and in which our co-convenor Steve Wyler took part, and his subsequent work on a ‘people powered network’.
The Relationship Project led by our founding member, David Robinson.
SMK’s Social Power project, led by our member Sue Tibballs, which includes their social power grid, and insights on the primacy of relationships and working with communities - In Whose Name? - as part of the 12 habits of successful change-makers.
The Good Help, Bad Help project being taken forward by our member, Richard Wilson.
Work on Valuing Social Infrastructure, including building a Social Wealth Fund, led by our co-convenor, Caroline Slocock for Community Links and the Early Action Task Force.
The work on Complexity by our member Toby Lowe, in partnership with Collaborate, including A Whole New World: Funding and Commissioning in Complexity.
Time for Towns which is seeking to support towns and regional bodies to develop strategies for improving the wellbeing of towns, led by the Carnegie UK Trust which collaborates with us on A Better Way.
The ChildFair State Inquiry, led by our founding member, Kathy Evans at Children England.
