Social enterprise development with Charity Link, a charity that provides goods and support for people in need.
I worked with the project director to develop a business plan to allow the board to make the decision to invest and which could have been used to raise investment if needed. This enterprise, The Goods Depot, has delivered its targets despite the impact of Covid and is expanding its offering and reach.
Sustainability support for a regional youth charity.
I worked with the CEO and the board to develop a new strategy to support their sustainability over the next 5 years. This strategy was then used as the foundation for a fundraising strategy and plan which included a business model for a social enterprise cafe and a model for a training enterprise to support additional staff posts.
Funding sustainability for an environment charity.
Exploring with the team how they could extend their fundraising especially focused on a particular site that had previously received restricted funds for its development. A range of options were explored and then a smaller number of ideas were developed in more detail into more comprehensive business plans with target audiences, revenue models, resource requirements and an initial project plan.
