Transforming public services delivery
London Ventures is a new model for local government designed to transform the delivery of public services in our capital. Developed and managed by EY in partnership with London Councils, the programme brings together private sector companies, investors and local authorities to drive innovation and cost efficiencies.
Taking advantage of EY’s extensive network, the programme partners with private and third sector organisations, helps them to develop their innovative ideas and concepts and tailor them to the local government market.
Through these new concepts, or ventures, London Ventures instils a collaborative approach in public services delivery. It helps local authorities work together, using their combined weight to drive better commercial deals with suppliers. It also encourages cross-sector partnerships that provide positive outcomes for local authorities, suppliers and investors alike.
London Ventures is overseen by the Capital Ambition Board which brings together all 32 London boroughs and the City of London.
Crowd-funder Spacehive have created an exciting transformation of public spaces in London, whereby they have renovated public toilets and telephone boxes into cafes and art galleries and turned high streets into fun-packed city-centre water slides. View the video link below to learn how Spacehive is enabling London boroughs to discover and support ideas for transformative civic projects, from the people living in their area.
