The Mutuals Support Programme offers support to both aspiring and growing Public Service Mutuals (mutuals) in England.

The government is funding a package of support programmes to support public sector organisations across England to start a Public Service Mutual, and to support existing mutuals to thrive.

A total of £1.2 million will be available to create new mutuals, or strengthen existing ones, by providing access to advice across areas including legal, financial, marketing, human resources and business planning.

The government is awarding funding to support organisations in England considering becoming a Public Service Mutual. Organisations that wish to become or grow as Public Service Mutuals can now apply for a share of up to £1.7 million in funding.

This round of funding will be available until March 2020 and follows the £57,000 that was awarded in 2017 to support mutuals.
