Social problems can be complex and multi-faceted. Greater impact is harder to achieve if organizations work in silos to try and resolve them. All levels of the society including the government, social service agencies, corporates and the public must strive to take a structured collaborative approach to create sustainable solutions. The Collective Impact model provides a structure for multiple organizations to forge a common agenda for solving a complex and specific social issue. Using this model, we seek a whole-of-sector approach with the aim to convene the key influencing partners for a common understanding of the problems, to conceive and align end outcomes, and decide on mutually reinforcing activities in the partnership.
This webinar series is brought to you by the National Council of Social Service, Singapore in partnership with the Tamarack Institute.
