3SC was exactly five years old on 23 July 2014. Over that time 3SC has swayed with the ebb and flow of procurement and has steadily built a portfolio of programmes that, through our wonderful and growing number of consortia members, are making an impact on some of our biggest social problems.

I sometimes reflect on the future landscape of public services. By future I mean long-term or even generational timescales. It seems to me that the accepted demographic shift towards people living longer, plus deepening income inequality and consequent increasing social disadvantage amongst some groups are some of the key risks to public services over this timescale.
