We have advised a number of local authorities on the establishment of mutuals, social enterprises and charities to deliver public services.

Our recent work includes:

  • Buckinghamshire Learning Trust - the spin out of school support services 
  • Aspire - the spin out of adult and community learning services from West Sussex
  • Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions - adult social care services from Thurrock
  • Woodlands - a community woodland service from Wycombe District Council

For a recent case study on the successful spin out of adult and community learning services from Suffolk County Council, please click here.

Realise Futures greatly valued the support, help and assistance it received in a wide range of areas during its divestment from Suffolk County Council. We were impressed with how quickly BWB staff grasped the complexities of our business and ensured that we had appropriate advice and options outlined clearly to us at all stages of the process. We could not have achieved our divestment without their support.
