The Collaborative

An image of overlapping hands to symbolise community

Dr Paula Karlsson-Brown, Dr Sarah Weakley (Policy Scotland) and Dr Jane Cullingworth have developed The Collaborative. The project focuses on improving the sustainability of Glasgow’s third sector which is pivotal to community resilience, particularly as organisations adapt, recover and transform from COVID-19. Working with the Glasgow Council for Voluntary Sector, The Collaborative aims to become a sustainable cross-discipline hub for pro-bono advice and expertise for Glasgow’s third sector organisations (TSOs), helping them access academic expertise on a variety of pressing issues in all phases of their lifecycle. The project is supported by the ESRC Impact Acceleration Accounts.
