Today, Minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, will launch the Mutuals Support Programme. The programme was mentioned in a post a few weeks ago but exact details of what is on offer are now available.
This programme brings together information, advice and bespoke support for fledgling mutuals. Elements of the programme include:
- New web resource
- Information and case management hotline
- Funding for bespoke professional services
In total a fund of more than £10m will enable the most promising and innovative mutuals to spin out of the public sector and deliver public services in England, according to the Cabinet Office.
You can access this new support by visiting the mutuals information on the Cabinet Office website or via the hotline number 0845 539 0543.
