Feedback we would like on our work What were your initial views on the usefulness of our publication? Are there any aspects that you think could have been clearer/made better? We left out a piece of work on Social Impact Bonds - would it be useful to do some follow up work around these/other newer funding models? Do you know of any case studies that we should try and find out more about/attempt to write up? Are you aware of other organisations doing this sort of work that we could collaborate with to maximise limited resources?
