We were engaged together with Rocket Science Consultants (www.rocketsciencelab.co.uk) to review the Council's business engagement strategy and wider employer interaction as part of a piece of consultancy delivered under the Local Government Association's Economic Growth Programme. We produced a report which included recommendations for future growth sectors and ways the Council could make best use of limited staff capacity in improving its enagement with local businesses
We were commissioned to carry out an evaluation of the ESF-funded VCS Assist project to support voluntary and community sector employment and skills groups. The evaluation aimed to capture the evidence and impacts of the project and comprised a documentation review, beneficiary survey, events review, communication analysis and stakeholder interviews.
We have an on-going contract to support Lewisham-based social enterprise Eco Communities in fund raising and project delivery. We have secured approximately £300k in project funding over the past 3 years for the social enterprise as well as facilitated several asset transfers and are now working with Eco to support Lewisham-based charity Seniors in securing additional project funding and in improving its governance and income generation.
