Public services: practical support
Public Service Delivery Network: training and information
Our Public Service Delivery Network is a free peer-to-peer network for those working to transform and deliver public services.
Since 2006 the Public Service Delivery Network (PSDN) has brought together 2,300 members to discuss and develop public service delivery by the voluntary sector.
Membership is open to commissioners, policy-makers, voluntary organisations, infrastructure and the private sector and is supported through regular training and seminars, a monthly news bulletin and free guides and case studies.
NCVO resources on public service delivery
Our Public Service Delivery webpages provide a wealth of information, advice and resources on the commissioning and delivery of public services by voluntary organisations.
These pages help you understand how to build good relationships, and steer you through the legal and policy complexities.
They also provide a step by step guide to the complete commissioning and procurement process, from initial needs analysis to evaluation and decommissioning.
