This paper will reflect on the role of design approaches, in a time of austerity and a time when this practice is more and more used by Governments and communities around the world to influence what next for our societies. By building on the case study of Mind, a UK based mental health charity, and their vision of embedding Design in the organisation, the paper will present and reflect on the opportunities and risks of introducing collaborative forms of design in public services and in society.
