ASCERT has wide-ranging experience of working in partnership with other organisations across all sectors, supporting their development or working with their clients and also delivering services together. We believe that partnership working offers a unique opportunity to share expertise, creativity and resources. This is why ASCERT has made partnership working a key approach to our work. Working together means different partners can play to their strengths. Above all, partnership working makes sense at a practical level – especially in the current economic climate. Our work with partner organisations means we can develop and deliver integrated services that are effective and value for money.
