Designing and delivering public services

In response to the Government's recent commitment to involve the third sector more closely in the design and delivery of public services, Acevo (the chief executives' body) and NAVCA (the umbrella body for local third sector support) have issued a joint statement on the issue.

They argue that an expanded third sector role can help to achieve modernised public services that provide:
? more pluralism, variety and flexibility, and
? greater engagement of citizens and communities in the process of delivery, supporting civil renewal and citizen and community engagement.
