System Change

The Golden Key partnership is creatively disruptive.  We review cultures and systems - highlighting what's working and trying to resolve what isn't.  Our approach to system change considers how we will create a lasting legacy which improves system commissioning and delivery beyond the life of the programme.

Evidence based

Walking alongside clients who represent a broad spectrum of demographics and needs has helped to identify what works for them and what doesn’t.  This learning is feeding into larger scale system change activity.

Information around blocks experienced by clients is also gathered from a range of other sources including Independent Futures, members of the System Change Group, the Partnership Board and the wider Golden Key partnership.

How are we achieving change?

We are empowering people across the system to think and act in a way that can change the system, both for individuals and the organisations that support them. Members from across the partnership have been trained in Schumacher System Thinking training, giving them the tools required to instigate change. The Spark Team is a dedicated partnership resource offering ongoing support for this work.

We believe that everyone can make change happen; across our partnership people are demonstrating that they have this power to make a positive difference. Each member of the partnership is in a unique position to influence change. This influence includes an ability to hold multiple perspectives, step outside organisations or specific roles, to look at the bigger picture and approach blocks and solutions with fresh eyes.

Sharing the learning

Learning from system change activities is shared with other members of the partnership with the aspiration that this can inform wider system change. For example, learning from activity in the mental health sector could be applied to blocks identified in the criminal justice sector.
