THE AGENCY

OUR STORY

A virtuous cycle of continuous improvement and nurturing local providers

TRUST is vital for all stakeholders in providing social services on behalf of the Government We saw an acute need for a ‘community interested’ prime to offer bottom-up solutions to commissioners and provide a robust platform for social services by social enterprise.

The Integrate Agency CIC has been set up to distribute all profit to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations (VCSE) through a Capacity Building Grants Fund to create a virtuous cycle of continuous improvement and practical nurturing of local social services providers.

As a limited by guarantee CIC, Integrate is solely for the benefit of the community and cannot be owned for private and personal benefit.

TRANSPARENCY builds trust and provides a robust platform to manage delivery and continuous improvement. Our markets include employability/skills, health and social care, justice and youth services. We aim to offer social solutions for all social services working with top quality local providers to leverage the power of the community for common purpose.

MISSION

The community focussed micro-prime

The Integrate Agency CIC is a community focused, always local micro-prime. We build consortia of top quality person-centric providers, provide robust managing agent services and then get out of the way. Our mission was defined precisely in our formation as a Community Interest Company as follows:

• In particular, the company’s activities will be carried out for the benefit of voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations who wish to access public sector contracts.

• The Integrate Agency CIC offers a platform for the VCSE community to access and compete for government contracts that their scale would not normally allow.

• The Integrate Agency CIC provides (1) consultancy services for items such as data security, marketing and business strategy to support VCSE organisations to build their capacity and (2) funds a grants programme through which discrete capacity building activity by third party experts can be purchased.

• Any surplus made will be invested into the grants programme. Additionally, 25% of all management fees earned by the company from government contracts will be invested into the grants programme
