The Reasoning

Why we have partners

Community change is difficult. It requires a huge variety of different skill sets which we might not have. It can require a knowledge of a certain location or a particular subject. It may require having the links and contacts into the right places, or just being able to give us some helpful advice.

How we use partners

Our partners create for us some fabulous opportunities. Sometimes those can be when we ask for them, but other times they can appear with those all important Eureka ideas that help move forward. We’ll work closely with our partners on an individual basis, cultivating a win-win relationship that strikes at the very heart of our organisation.
