This is a brief record of the presentations and discussions that took place at our recent conference in Manchester, attended by 100 delegates from the movement in England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Romania and Scotland. The report can be downloaded here or by clicking the image to the right. The themes were Collaboration and Communities, with presentations from several practitioners.

- Good and effective governance – and the role of the board in driving collaboration
- Coping with the loss of autonomy
- Recognising that there is not one sole path to collaboration – there are multiple models and approaches
- Developing relationships based on trust.
