The best practice guide aims to encourage and support the development of new models of collaborations between the two sectors by highlighting the diverse models already in place.

It had been created by ERSA and the National Housing Federation.

The guide includes case studies of those working on a range of employment programmes and with a range of employment services providers, from public sector to large private providers. It is hoped that the guide will be used as a starting point for people to develop their own ways of working together that utilises the strength of all the organisations involved.
