Managing in Tough Times
Commissioned by Bristol and West of England ChangeUp Consortia and funded by Capacity Builders, Managing in Tough Times is a guide covering key issues that may affect Third Sector organisations during periods of financial insecurity. It offers a framework of identifying and assessing current risks and offers guidance on how an organisation can manage and adjust to change. Should the difficult decision be made to close the organisation, it offers guidance on the steps that are required depending on the legal structure of the organisation.

A Framework for Collaboration
A framework for Collaboration was commissioned by the West of England Consortium in March 2010. Workshops for Board and staff members are being delivered alongside this resource.
There is a broad spectrum of collaborative working; from one-off joint events which most organisations have experience of, to joint service delivery of a project, all the way to full merger between one or more organisations. In this publication we concentrate on collaboration for joint service delivery, which can have a substantial impact on an organisation’s profile and therefore demands careful examination.
There are many tools and resources available to help build collaboration and we have brought together those we feel are particularly useful to offer a framework for collaboration. Starting with the needs of service users, we explore the internal and external factors that might drive an organisation towards collaboration; we look at the pros and cons of the different collaboration models; and finally a staged process for partnership building.
