To monitor the health of the mutuals sector and establish whether the government’s interventions are having a positive impact. This will include the growth in number, size and turnover of public service mutuals.

To gain in-depth qualitative insight, over an extended period of time, of the real challenges and opportunities faced when running a public service mutual.
