Welfare and Community
No area of public life has been harder hit in recent years by the cutbacks in national and local government spending than the health, welfare and community sector. Conversely, public support in this area is perhaps greater than in any other. We have worked with some 300 hospitals, hospices, community care groups, nursing homes and health charities over the years. Our expertise can help you harness the enthusiasm and commitment that your organisation generates through its work to maximize your fundraising potential.
Current and recent clients include
The Rowans Hospice, Portsmouth - recent
The Rowans Hospice felt, quite rightly as it turned out, that there was scope to approach grant-making trusts as part of a campaign to raise capital funding for an additional building. But there was no capacity within the existing fundraising department nor the resources to employ a new member of staff.
We therefore provided a consultant to manage all aspects of the trusts campaign. And we hit the beach running, as the expression of interest for the first application was submitted on day two of our service, and ultimately produced a £50,000 grant.
We researched previous trust supporters (including those who had been involved from the very start, twenty years previously) and potential new ones, co-ordinated the drafting of tailored applications and managed any necessary follow-up.
We began work in the summer of 2014 and the new building opened in October 2016. The Living Well Centre, as its name suggests, will enable the Hospice to support patients from the very start of a life-limiting illness, when, with information, therapy and someone to talk to, they can hopefully continue to live as normal a life as possible.
Superkidz - recent
We are managing fundraising for this small, but very much needed, charity that supports children and young people facing poverty, debt, gang violence, and drug crime in some of the most deprived estates in South East London. A key aim is to raise funds for day to day operations, while planning for longer term sustainability.
Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign - recent
Our long-term involvement over some years has contributed to the development and realization of plans for The Haven at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. This specialist one-stop unit improves the quality of life for people affected by breast cancer by providing personalised emotional, practical and physical support.
