Collaboration for voluntary organisations should be an obvious and good idea. However, often collaboration is perceived to be a threat - a way of cutting costs, or a feeling of being taken over, losing identity and relevance. It needn't be that way. This book is an unique and complete guide to how voluntary organisations can find effective and creative ways of collaborating and working together, from partnerships to joint agreements to mergers, to increase the gains for users and communities. For CEOs, managers and charity professionals who want to consider new working methods and take advantage of creative opportunities.
