Commissioning of offender services from the VCSE Sector [June 2013]

Published: June 2013

This discussion paper presents initial findings from the first stage of the research into local Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations’ experiences of commissioning and procurement.

In 2012 Clinks started this research project, working alongside frontline services in order to inform national policy development.  

This interim findings report is intended to prompt discussion; to stimulate debate, key questions have been highlighted and interactive discussion is being encouraged on our blog.
