“There are now 100 public sector mutuals across England and Wales. These are new businesses, employing 35,000 people and delivering services from community health to libraries. We know this is just the beginning of a massive transformation – we have even had interest from a fire service looking to mutualise.”

The Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM) recently released a Green Paper into the application of public service mutuals in Australia. The feedback from the Green Paper will inform a Public Service Mutuals White Paper, to be launched by Minister Kevin Andrews in September.
