Your Task. Our Task

Our team have all worked in the voluntary sector and understand the different dynamics at play. In these austerity times funding is becoming more and more difficult. We can work with you to show you how to redesign your services yet keep the most vulnerable protected. We can work with you to show you how big organisations make changes and how you can negotiate using the Equality Act 2010, identify their thinking and challenge their processes. It is important as voluntary sector that you are ready to respond and to consult service users and wider community when change is being planned. We can help you to identify the best process that meets all the legal requirements and that will have maximum impact on your funders.
