Business & Local Government: Partnership, Contracts and Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility is undoubtedly one of the most exciting areas of innovation, both for businesses and local government. Increasingly, businesses are embracing the opportunities presented by partnerships for community regeneration and development and relationships are being explored which benefit the private, public and voluntary sectors.

Business & Local Government: Partnerships, Contracts and Corporate Social Responsibility is an NLGN collection of essays illustrating different perspectives on the opportunities presented by this type of joined up approach. The authors – drawn from a cross-section of the public, private and voluntary sectors explore the challenges of the CSR agenda and consider practical examples of how different bodies and institutions are working together for the benefit of local communities.

The report is the sixth publication in NLGN’s ‘Delivering Change’ series, which aims to help senior officers and elected members learn from practical evidence of change to respond positively to the local government modernisation agenda.
