Fusion have produced a Consortium Toolkit for User Led Organisations ULOs).
The toolkit is intended to provide a reference for developing or fully fledged ULOs considering adopting a consortium approach, with a particular focus on the legal and constitutional aspects of consortium development. While there are various toolkits and guidance available regading consortium working in the third sector in general, this toolkit is unusual in that it focuses specifically on ULOs.
The toolkit was developed as part of the South West Region User Led Organisation (ULO) Consortium Project. The project was led by Fusion and
was funded by the Department of Health ULO Development Fund 2008 – 2009. The project aims were to support organisations seeking to develop ULO
consortia in their local authority areas.
