Unity Works supports people with a learning disability to gain skills, achieve qualifications and secure jobs, so they can reach their full potential. We started working with them when the charity was still called The Camden Society.
We supported them to create a long-term fundraising strategy, build and mentor a new fundraising team, and increase their grant funding. They secured over £600,000 in the first two years.
"You've contributed so much to us during a challenging transition period - helping to mentor our fundraising team and secure crucial grant funding. Thanks to your knowledge, strategic approach and bid writing expertise, we can look forward to a positive future."
BRIDGES FOR COMMUNITIES
Bridges for Communities, based in Bristol, brings together people of different cultures and faiths to increase tolerance and understanding. They also run a befriending service for refugees and asylum seekers.
We guided senior staff and trustees through a process to create a new three-year fundraising strategy, design a case for support, and identify new funding prospects. This saw the charity's income grow by over 50% in 12 months.
"I'm delighted that we now have a clear and thought-through strategy to guide our fundraising efforts. I can confidently say that we have assessed our opportunities and our needs, and we know what we aiming for! This gives me and the trustees a great deal of reassurance."
LEAP is a social enterprise with a big vision, helping people in Norwich who face disadvantage to find education, employment and accommodation.
We helped them to develop an interim strategy during a tricky transition period, providing vital focus and reassurance to the team. We ran two strategic planning workshops for LEAP, involving staff at all levels of the organisation.
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Mike from Lime Green Consulting. He has a relaxed, friendly and approachable facilitating style and his sessions were not only hugely productive but were enjoyed by team members of all levels."
