The role of mutuals in public service innovation

The agenda to increase the involvement of mutual organisations and employee ownership in public service delivery has been of growing policy importance over the past five years, but increasingly so for the current government which has raised expectations of the potential of mutuals as organisational vehicles for innovation and improved productivity.
