In June we took on the challenge to become a Sepsis Savvy organisation - I'm really pleased to announce we've done it!
Tracy Giles joined us in August. Most recently, Tracy was part of the team working on social enterprise “spin outs” in the health sector at Capsticks, before developing her own consultancy. She has also worked in house in at a number of local authorities, and brings a range and depth of public sector experience to our local government and social enterprise teams. Tracy will be helping to develop our social enterprise practice, and supporting our own spin out work – she is already a key part of the team working with the adult social care service in a major local authority as they look to form a staff led mutual.
Cliff Mills joined Anthony Collins Solicitors as a consultant from 8th September. Cliff is nationally regarded for his work with the co-operative movement, formerly as a partner with Cobbetts and as part of think tank Mutuo. He has worked with Co-operatives UK and many of the leading consumer societies, and was part (with David Alcock) of the team responsible for the newly updated Handbook of Co-operative and Community Benefit Society Law. Cliff has already worked with us alongside a major Probation Trust, who were developing a multi stakeholder mutual to bid into the Transforming Rehabilitation contracts issued by the Ministry of Justice.
Both of these appointments have real significance to us as we look to take forward our work supporting co-operatives and mutuals, and the increasing importance of social enterprises in public service delivery. Cliff and Tracy are both respected practitioners who contribute to the real strength in depth of our team, as we come alongside mutuals and social enterprises and support the development of the sector.
