The Enabling State in Practice: Evidence from Innovators
Author: Tara Murphy and Jennifer Wallace
Learning From Innovative Projects That Give Individuals And Communities More Control
Our new report introduces the learning from 6 innovative projects which show the current ‘state of play’ of the Enabling State. The projects were the winners of our Enabling State Challenge.

However we continue to see two models running in parallel, with innovations coming up against challenges of rules and regulations designed for a more traditional model of public services.
