Corporate Partnerships

Although many community sector organisations compete with other organisations for access to government and private funds, collaboration between organisations can provide important benefits to organisations and their clients.

Working with others, either though informal networks or formal partnerships, Allevia and its partners can provide:

  • greater efficiency and less duplicated effort. For example, a consortia approach to a competitive funding round can deliver integrated service models, achieve broader geographic coverage or reduced costs
  • access to additional resources or lower costs through sharing resources such as office space, administration or other aspects of an organisation's operation
  • improved service coordination across agencies, with better pathways or referral systems for clients
  • a holistic approach to meeting client needs, with better and more efficient access to the range of services required, improved quality and consistency of service and greater responsiveness to needs
  • organisational knowledge and improved service system capability
  • greater innovation and flexibility to respond to changing, emerging or more complex client needs and changing operations and operational environments
  • access to up-to-date information, new ideas and strategic thinking
  • improved capacity to demonstrate best practice
  • political and lobbying strength
  • increased capacity to successfully submit tenders or expressions of interest and to deliver projects, and
  • additional expertise, support or legal protection for small, new, or struggling organisations.

Over time, Allevia believes that the combined benefits of collaboration create new opportunities for partnering with others to build strong, safe, healthy and vital communities and a sustainable future together.

Allevia values its partnerships and believes that its ability to achieve greater social impact is enhanced through those partnerships.
