With devolution in mind Social adVentures created the country’s first Health and Social Care Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). Made up of 8 social enterprises and charities the LLP has a combined £33m turnover giving the scale to compete against big players.

It’s a model that can work across the public sector across different geographies and areas of delivery and Social adventures are happy to share their journey so that others can do the same.

The Health and Wellbeing LLP has ambitious plans and has had a lot of interest from social investors – they are not only bidding for new contracts via the LLP but are raising social finance to enable them to take control of social projects such as buying property for social garden centres and community supermarkets.

So if you’re interested in –

  • How you can compete in the new devolved market
  • How to take control of devolution
  • Making partnerships work effectively for the good of our communities

And you want to learn from organisations that have gone ahead and done it, made it work and want to share and assist others to do the same… Come and find out at this workshop.
