Collective Impact is a groundbreaking framework for creating large-scale social and systems change.
It enables organisations from different sectors to innovate together, solving social problems by aligning the way they work and using common measures for success.
A key part of collective impact work is establishing strong local and national coordination teams – this is called a ‘backbone team’. The backbone team work together to build new conditions in local communities for the system to work in a new – and much better – way.
At Strong Kids Strong Centre, collective impact gives structure and accountability to how we collaborate with people, communities and our partner organisations. It helps us to work together towards a shared purpose instead of competing with each other or duplicating our efforts. This means we can pool the resources we have to innovate, learn and improve across the system.
