Social Impact Measurement Toolbox

We are delighted that the Northern Rock Foundation has purchased over 50 Toolkits for their small grant recipients.  This is to assist them in monitoring specific outcomes and to ensure they can see that their grants are making a difference.

Organisations have been delighted with their Toolbox

Many thanks.  It is like getting a late Christmas present- something to beat the early year blues! (Ian from Stockton)

The SIM Toolbox is proving a worthwhile, value for money investment for small organisations that need to begin or improve their evidence gathering.  Details are available here

Support for Pre-school Settings

The Norfolk Community Foundation has grant funded a pilot activity with pre-schools across the county.  We will be delivering urgently needed support, two group activities and a further five one-to-one development sessions with pre-schools that are facing significant problems with their governance, their sustainability and their business models.

We are working with the Early Years team to ensure this very limited service gets to where it is needed but please get in touch if you want more information.  Speak to keith@the-guild.co.uk

Kelsale-cum-Carlton Community Energy

 The group have been successful in applying to the Co-operative Enterprise Hub www.cooperative.coop/enterprisehub/ for consultancy support for their village energy scheme.  They are intending to launch their community share issue as soon as the IPS (Community Benefit Society) is registered.

Keith will be working with them to ensure the structure and the share issue go forward without any problems!

Fast on Water

 We are working with a group of enthusiasts to establish a museum in Lowestoft for British power boat circuit racing.  This is in the very early stages of development but we are very excited about the prospects and the opportunity to be involved with this from the beginning.
