All of our programmes are built on the foundation of strong partnerships. We share the ambitions of many people and organisations so it's vital that we work together to deliver more for less.

From local authorities to businesses, housing providers to community groups – we work collaboratively and creatively to bring about sustainable change on the ground. This may mean bringing in other partners from our extensive network, identifying match funding or delivering additional benefits for individuals (such as training or work experience).

Our business plan for 2017/18 offers a useful summary of our current plans for the year ahead.

Here's what our partners said about us in our annual stakeholder survey in late 2016:
