While demands for charities to increase collaboration are on the rise, collaboration has no value in itself; it needs to answer to specific organisational or societal needs. This article draws on a case study of the House for Health, a consortium of five charities in the Netherlands that shares a building for joint use. It asks how this particular arrangement can be made instrumental to fostering the charities’ missions. We find that it is best suited to enable collective organisational learning and discuss strengths, weaknesses and options for implementation.
