  3. 3. 1. What is Collective Impact? “Collective Impact is the commitment of a group of important actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem” Source: FSG.ORG 3
  4. 4. What is involved in Collective Impact? • S 4Source: FSG.ORG
  5. 5. A bit about backbones… • Key is having someone whose role is to convene & coordinate • Includes: o Guiding vision & strategy o Supporting aligned activities o Establishing measurements o Building public support o Advancing policy o Mobilising funding o Seems to work better if the backbone organisation has some independence and doesn’t compete for funding 5
  6. 6. Collaboration compared to Collective Impact • S 6 Collaboration is “working with others to do a task and to achieve shared goals” Collective Impact is a structured form of collaboration
  7. 7. 2a. CI in Action: NY Juvenile Justice System • Vision: Across New York State, the juvenile justice system promotes youth success and ensures public safety • Structure – Steering committee, working groups, state-funded backbone staff • Results: – State custody reduced by 45% – Policy of keeping youth close to home if possible – Arrests have dropped by 24% 7
  8. 8. 2b. CI in Action: Learning Auckland • Goal: All Aucklanders have the learning they need to realise their dreams • Process: o Education Summit held o Backbone organisation agreed o Mapping the system and data gathering o Leadership table established o 100 conversations in 100 days o Priorities identified o Actions initiated 8
  9. 9. How Learning Auckland works 9
  10. 10. Learning Auckland Achievements • Key cross-sector organisations involved and cooperating • 88 signatories to Auckland Education Accord • Measurements agreed and baseline data collected • 34 organisations collaborating on developing early oral language • Multiple changes to “business as usual” in the sector 10
  11. 11. Learning Auckland Key Messages • Comet CE Susan Warren says: o The big opportunity is changing business as usual AND making system change o It takes a long time so don’t hurry the process o Relationship building and face-to- face is key o Get in the habit of using the data o Notice and celebrate small wins o Finding funding is not easy o Stay lean 11
  12. 12. 3. Why Collective Impact matters “In my own life experience, I was a disconnected youth who struggled with addiction and depression through my teens and lived on the streets after high school. Fortunately, I received a lot of help that helped me get back on track. In-patient treatment, out-patient treatment, therapy, mutual support group, mentors, and friends could all claim me as an outcome. But while each of these played a necessary role in my recovery, none were by themselves sufficient. And anyone measuring my success after three years would have reached a different conclusion than measuring me after five. It was a mix of service and supports and most of all a supportive community over several years that helped me.” 12 Paul Schmitz, Author and Collective Impact Advisor

  17. 17. 4. The challenges of Collective Impact • Collective Impact is a very promising approach, but: o Requires trust, cooperation and breaking down siloes o Need to manage the “collaboration trolls” of control, competition and commitment o Doesn’t happen quickly o Can be hard to fund o Must involve our communities (“do with”, not “do to”) o Disrupts power hierarchies 17
  18. 18. Traditional Funding hierarchy 18 Funders decide funding for: Community Organisations decide services for: People and Communities
  19. 19. 4. The community-led hierarchy 19 People and communities help themselves and each other Community Organisations give specialist support if required Funders give $ if reqd

  21. 21. Possible Roadmaps for starting CI 1. What issues are your communities grappling with? 2. Community and cross-sector conversations and sharing 3. Agree vision and how you will measure progress 4. Create structure (leadership, backbone, funding) 5. Start with small projects (See http://www.collaborationforimpact.com/the-how-to-guide/ for more info) 21
  22. 22. Final Thoughts • We can’t change the world by ourselves – let’s do it together • Collective Impact is one way of working together • Include a Community-led approach • It is a tool not a straight jacket – use and adapt! 22
