Dale and Russ founded Latitude Network around the idea that to solve social problems we need to find the best possible solutions and then we need to give these ideas the resources they need to flourish. We reckon you can look at this problem a bit like a funnel – we need a multitude of ideas going into the top of the funnel and then a smart, quick and cost-effective way of sifting through them to identify which ones will work in which locations and with which people and communities. Then, once we have found them, we need to get them out there, fast.
Latitude Network works with Government, social service providers, funders and others to build – and secure funding for – outcomes-based contract delivery. From negotiating Social Impact Bond contracts, attracting new forms of social finance to fund outcomes-based partnerships between Government and the social sector or designing Australia’s first Outcomes-Based Infrastructure project, Latitude Network works with leading organisations to help build a performance-driven social service system.
