Two learning disability charities are exchanging information on all aspects of their operations as part of a 'twinning' arrangement.
PentaHact and Cornerstone are swapping best-practice models on everything from funding to service provision. It is hoped the information-sharing exercise will help both charities bolster weaker areas within their own organisations.
"It is clear that, through learning more about each other's organisations and sharing good practice, both our organisations will be able to provide even better quality services," said Nick Baxter, chief executive of Cornerstone.
Competition will not affect the arrangement because of the charities' geographical locations, PentaHact added.
