By E Gray-King and D WilcoxPartnerships are about sharing creativity, risk and responsibility and streamlining tasks to those best suited to do them. If partnerships are established well, the productivity of a partnership is higher than if each partner worked separately as a result of each doing what they do best. The guide describes the advantages and definition of partnership, how to choose a partner and build a partnership. It also helps local authorities, private sector bodies, and voluntary organisations faced with tight timetables and firm guidelines to think through the complexities for partnership. The guide includes a worksheet and draft letter for partners to commit to.
