To make things happen in communities can be challenging with many barriers along the way. We see ourselves as part of your team, working alongside you and building on what you are already good at. Our development services are there to help overcome the challenges you face – which can include funding, planning permission, securing assets, involving your community – to turn your project from an idea into reality on the ground.
Often we find that organisations we work with have developed brilliant services and products and we know that there are clear beneficiaries and clients. However the key is linking the two. If these customers don’t know a product or service exists, how can they buy it? If a client doesn’t know a service exists or doesn’t have confidence in it, how can they benefit from it? Clever marketing and communication is vital.
As well as direct support to communities, organisations and social enterprises, we regularly develop new initiatives that make it easier for groups to operate. We love to try new things and new ideas emerge all the time, driven by what our friends in the sector tell us.
