6 Q: What’s all this got to do with the Wakefield District Wellbeing Consortium?

7 A: It’s been set up in response to all the above!

8 What is the Consortium? A ‘special purpose vehicle’, set up to enable collective VCS delivery of services in Wakefield District. It is a company ltd by guarantee and a registered charity

9 The VCS already holds public contracts – what’s the point? Savings: public bodies likely to want to create larger contracts Or may want to ‘bundle’ existing contracts More opportunities emerging (e.g. Catalyst Council) Many small organisations don’t hold contracts Competition for larger commercial providers Create management capacity for sector SROI carried out on commissions
