The report presents findings of a six month research project conducted across London's VCS based on interviews with 15 organisations that have undergone merger or worked collaboratively. The research provides insight into how groups in London are responding to the funding crisis and establishing exciting ways of working together. The report demonstrates the resilience of the VCS in London and how it is adapting in an ever changing environment. Eithne Rynne, LVSC's Chief Executive says "LVSC and VSF have produced this research report to help support groups in London who are thinking of working more collaboratively or merging. The case studies show us how groups in London are adapting to the difficult funding environment and how they are finding ever more creative ways of collaborating".
