Launched in July 2012, Guiding Principles for Collaboration Between Government and Philanthropic Organisations is a new resource for those practicing, or interested in, cross-sectoral collaborations.
Developed by the Office for the Community Sector, Department of Planning and Community Development in Victoria and Philanthropy Australia, Guiding Principles offers a set of pointers to facilitate successful partnerships.
There are 15 key principles, structured under four headings:
1. Creating the environment
2. Shaping partnerships and building relationships
3. Decision making and Management practices, and
4. Evaluation and sustainability
