PEOPLE MEETING COMMON ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL NEEDS TOGETHER
Community and Human Services
Charities, Non-profits, Social Enterprise and MUTUAL SOCIAL CARE PROVIDERS
Are a new expression of public interest ownership
Mutuals are focussed on the services they exist to deliver, affording a direct relationship between service providers and users, rather than through public authority bureaucracies or private sector operators.
Participative ownership builds trust and confidence in service providers
By engaging staff and service users directly, mutuals provide a voice for all stakeholders, ensuring that services are co-produced and trusted by all.
