We find that Connectors are increasingly recognised as a positive intervention for increased cross-sector working at a local level. This is through bringing together diverse groups with potentially aligned interests, introducing more collaborative approaches to skills sharing/mentoring, and encouraging resource-sharing between sectors. In this context, the work of Connectors supports the characteristics of co-creation, shared value and developing shared access to different resources, and this model can be said to challenge market-transaction based models of value.
