holding answer 31 October 2011

This Government are committed to supporting the creation and expansion of mutuals. Over the last year the 21 Cabinet Office Mutual Pathfinders have provided valuable learning which is being developed into a comprehensive package of support for fledgling mutuals. Many of the pathfinders have developed community engagement and ownership models, leading to responsive services which can innovate to meet local need.

The Cabinet Office is also working with local partners to develop new community focused commissioning models.
