MHM’s approach to developing partnerships: Coming together and sharing ideas – It is important to MHM to identify organisations that share our Vision and Values. We believe that spending time discussing what is important to us helps to identify the most innovative, creative and valuable partnerships that go on to benefit the people we work with. We like to do this in person/virtually with the right people from each organisation participating, these are free flowing sessions where ideas, experience and priorities are shared. Information sharing – If all parties agree that we would like to progress our idea and potential partnership, we will put the relevant documents in place. These include non-disclosure or Information Sharing Agreements, as well as carrying out respective due diligence. These documents and processes keep all partners' information and intellectual property/ideas safe, meaning we can continue to develop and innovate our ideas. Identify opportunities – At this point we can now start to look at what funding opportunities there are for us to work towards. We can develop our ideas, models and strategies whilst carrying out gap and market analysis. Securing Business – We can then move forward in a number of ways: identifying appropriate Grants or short terms funds that allow us to pilot an idea, approaching commissioners directly when we know our idea fits with their priorities and strategic direction, approaching a larger potential partner such as a Trust to pilot the idea when we know it fits their strategic objectives and they have gaps in provision, identification of formal tender opportunity, or potentially the utilisation of internal unrestricted funds across the partners to test an idea via a pilot. We believe that through working in partnership we can deliver services which increase the quality and scale of support available to clients and commissioners. By taking the best bits of what each partner has to offer we can create services which are affordable, highly performing and accessible for those in need.
