Designing and delivering innovative, measurable social impact
Trusted by many of the UK's leading employers, our bespoke services enable organisations to deliver effective social impact and community outreach within their operating areas – whether local, regional or national.
We take a design-led approach to every piece of work – advising, creating, engaging, organising and delivering – so that our partners can have real confidence in the results. Drawing on our considerable expertise, each programme is designed around our clients’ needs and objectives.
Our partners want to achieve real outcomes, through activity that has the potential to change lives and opportunity. We are experts in turning strategy into projects that can be delivered on the ground to achieve sustained impact that can be evidenced to stakeholders. Our programmes can form part of an effective ESG strategy because they are carefully designed, targeted and measured.
We bring our experience to the table to help our partners to agree objectives, assess their current position/strategy, explore options and weigh up relevant considerations. This enables them to decide upon programmes that will deliver the most value to the communities and individuals that they want to benefit.
Our experienced project team, which includes a dedicated in-house creative team, provides our partners with inspirational ideas and can take responsibility for the production of multimedia content and resources that are aligned to different audiences.
We are experts in identifying and engaging with the right partners, whether schools and colleges, community partners, local authorities and strategic bodies as well as other employers and understanding their objectives.
Our team excels in delivering careers and employability skills activities and projects that support young people in the education system. These may be large or small one-off events or programmes of activity that run over the course of many years with dedicated education partners.
All activities are carefully planned and designed to meet the needs of everyone involved to ensure they provide meaningful, hands-on activities and experiences for young people, schools and business volunteers. We take on all the organisational responsibility to ensure smooth delivery and maximise the return on time invested by our partners.
We put bespoke evaluation frameworks in place around our partner programmes, using different methods to gather feedback and data to evidence results. This enables our partners to meet different ESG and social value reporting requirements.
