Peter Beresford, Mark Harrison

September 2020

In the wake of the abuse scandals at OXFAM and the Save the Children Fund, Shaping Our Lives Chair Peter Beresford and Social Action Solutions director Mark Harrison write for Labour Briefing about the failures of market-based model of service delivery where the delivery of long-term programmes is outsourced to the private sector and international non-governmental organisations. Peter and Mark consider this in the context of the Department for International Development promising funding to the private sector to run a disability programme without the involvement of the local DPOs or user-led organisations.
