Awareness and prevention
In Cross-sector collaboration: Implications for Gambler's Help, the Bouverie Centre outlines a compelling case for cross-sector collaboration by drawing on numerous Australian and international case studies where successful outcomes have been achieved.
The paper explores the evidence for cross-sector collaboration in public health as well as mechanisms that promote collaborative work. Drawing on the existing literature on the subject, this paper considers the particular value of this model of practice for the Gambler's Help sector.
The evidence shows why cross-sector collaboration is a more efficient and effective way of providing services for individuals and/or families with complex needs. Importantly, cross-sector collaboration allows agencies to better manage the complex needs of clients, and provide a more holistic and coordinated service.
