Developing Partnerships

 

The Partnership Practice Guides are a series of four guides on partnering designed to provide information, tools and resources to staff in the health, housing and community services sector and government departments.

This resource is for organisations entering into or working in a partnership to assess, monitor and maximise its ongoing effectiveness. It is designed to help organisations: develop a clearer understanding of the range of purposes of collaborations, reflect on the partnerships they have established, and focus on ways to strengthen new and existing partnerships by engaging in discussion about issues and ways forward.
