Mutuals Support Programme (GoMutual Consortium)

The Mutuals Support Programme 2 (MSP2) is a £1.7m government programme that offers support to both aspiring and growing Public Service Mutuals (Mutuals). Eastside Primetimers is proud to be part of the Go Mutual Consortium, selected by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) to provide professional support.

Go Mutual is comprised of five organisations (Eastside Primetimers, Stepping Out, MetaValue, Social Enterprise Acumen, and Hempsons solicitors) supported by top Mutual leaders, and between us we have already worked with over 50 existing and potential Mutuals. We have covered the likes of adult social care, children and young people, leisure and libraries and have crossed the country from the South West to the North East. Along the way we have come to recognise the ingredients of what makes a successful and sustainable Mutual.

Under the Mutual Support Programme 2, the Go Mutual Consortium team provide a bespoke tailored offer to meet the following needs including:

  • Strategy and business planning
  • Legal – structures, governance, contracts, employment, and more
  • Financial planning, modelling and tax
  • HR and organisational change
  • Marketing
  • Bid writing
  • Measuring social value


To apply for grant support you must be interested in exploring alternative delivery models including Mutualisation, or have left the public sector in the last first 5 years of operation. You must also able to demonstrate how support from this programme will help your organisation grow or diversify its operations.
