Building cross-sectoral collaborations to enable social action
Jon Burchell is working with local authorities and their voluntary and community sector partners to explore ways of building social action in place.
Since 2018, Dr Jon Burchell has been working on a series of projects focused upon breaking down the barriers to effective collaboration between local authorities and their voluntary and community sector partners and building stronger models of place-based on social action.
Through running the Enabling Social Action project for the UK's department of Digital Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) and a subsequent ESRC funded project on collaborative responses to community need during the Covid-19 pandemic, Jon has been part of building the Enabling Social Action Network of practitioners active in this field. He has also been involved in shaping a model for enhancing place-based collaborative working which has informed local authority practice in many locations across the UK.
