We have completed the first year of an extensive research project looking at the contribution and potential of Public Service Mutuals.
Public service mutuals are organisations that have left the public sector but continue delivering public services. Employee control plays a significant role in their operation and they are free from government control.
The Government Inclusive Economy Unit and Social Enterprise UK commissioned us to complete an annual ‘State of the Sector’ survey which will be repeated over the next three years. The data collected will provide a robust evidence base to support the work of Mutual organisations and assist with their development and growth.
The 100+ interviews took place with organisation leaders by telephone throughout January and February 2018.
