Originally publised in Trust & Foundation News (July 2016).

The United Kingdom’s austerity program has reduced government benefits to some of the most vulnerable populations. By tapping into the UK’s art of collaboration and cross-sector partnership, collective impact offers a method for communities to provide the support needed to help these groups flourish.

Top Takeaways

  • As austerity measures have reduced government spending on public services, funding from private philanthropies can be used to spark collective impact initiatives that can fill these gaps.
     
  • Foundations can contribute to large-scale change throughout the UK by issuing grants to fund the process of collaboration, funding the backbone function, and shifting focus from outputs to outcomes.
