What is it?

We can research and identify appropriate partners for your new venture or project both here in the UK, across Europe and further afield. (We have contacts in other countries who help us to do this work).

Choosing the right partners for a project is essential. We have lots of experience as partners in projects ourselves so we really understand the challenges and benefits that partnership working can bring.

We have specific methods and techniques which are based on internally established best practice which can help you choose the correct partners for you.

Why is it useful?

  1. Partnership working is an increasingly important part of working in the voluntary sector today and in accessing funding. We know from experience that when engaging in a partnership project or creating a consortium you have to be very careful about the partners you choose to work with. You need to make sure they share your values base and that they have complementary skills and experience.
  2. Finding the right partners is essential - many projects fail completely or struggle unnecessarily if the wrong partners are brought to the table. Clear communication, a shared understanding and ownership of the partnership project objectives are all important.
  3. It is often important when selecting partners to ensure that they understand how your joint venture will help them to achieve their own organisation's objectives and indeed their own personal job goals. Otherwise the project will be seen as additional to their "day job" and not an essential part of it! We can facilitate planning discussions, team away days and initial partnership meetings to help with this. Such meetings help clarify roles and responsibilities, develop stronger relationships and optimise your use of the expertise, skills and experience which the proposed partnership brings.

Finding the right partners can be very time consuming but we believe is an essential for successful working and well worth the research and resources to get it right first time.

Who is this suitable for?

  • Anyone considering leading a partnership project and you need to carefully select the right partners or
  • Any organisation who is thinking about being part of a larger scale project and you want to know a little bit more about your potential partners before you sign up.
