One short answer to this might be ‘Because we have to!’ Depending on your role and the context in which you are working, working with others may be something that is required of you by your organisation or that you are required to do in response to government policy, and may be central to your practice.

We begin this section by examining the context and background to partnership working. We then go on to look at the benefits of working in partnership – for young people, for organisations and for communities.
