The Public Services Lab is a collaborative joint venture created and delivered by Interserve, ClubfinanceCatch22 and Big Society Capital to help voluntary, community and social enterprises across Liverpool to develop the skills and business practices to deliver innovative, effective and sustainable public services.

“This award recognises the scope and potential for the Lab to influence and change the way that public services are delivered. The Lab has been designed to support Liverpool’s mission-led community to scale, collaborate and deliver public services differently. Once launched, it should benefit everyone; from commissioners through to users of public services.”
