Joint working agreements

We often work closely with other organisations to achieve a common goal in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Our partnership approach can take different forms. It may be no more than an informal understanding with another organisation. Or we may draw up a joint working agreement, or concordat, to formalise a partnership.

Such an agreement can help to:

  • set out our respective roles
  • establish common interests
  • promote positive approaches to achieving shared aims
  • identify new joint working opportunities
  • formalise how we work together to develop effective working relations

In all cases, we work hard to build positive, mutually beneficial relationships with our partners, listening to their needs as well as addressing our own.
