Bridges Outcomes Partnerships is a not-for-profit social enterprise established to develop and deliver outcomes-based contracts, working in partnership with public sector commissioners and impact driven delivery organisations.
Outcomes-based contracts create better outcomes for people they work with and better value for the public purse, because they offer greater flexibility, stronger incentives and enhanced project management.
The Bridges team has now successfully structured, arranged and project-managed almost 50 of these projects, developing particular expertise in children's services, health & social care and housing and employment. Together, these contracts have supported more than 20,000 beneficiaries and are on course to deliver over £100m of positive outcomes to Government.
