Building A More Hopeful Story For Change In Public Service Delivery
As austerity continues to affect public spending, governments are struggling with the implications of ageing populations and increased demand. There is also a growing awareness that many of the ‘wicked’ problems of the 21st century predate the financial crisis.
Led by Carnegie Fellow Sir John Elvidge the Trust has been exploring the emergence of the Enabling State– a new more responsive and engaged model of public services that provides citizens and communities with more control and that open up opportunities for collaborative working.
This new report supported by the Trust as part of our Enabling State project and commissioned by a working group of civil society leaders sets out the belief that a more hopeful story of change, based on ‘common good’ principles, is needed to address many of the big challenges faced across the country.
The aim is to stimulate debate over the next two years. To feed back on the report please get in touch via email@example.com.
