"Really pleased to have started working with Nicola, she instantly understood the needs of our organisation and recognises the role we play in our community, she speaks our language. With Nicola's help, we are already considering new partnerships and funding opportunities that we didn't even realise were an option." David Roberts Soundwave
It's been a busy autumn for LynchPin Support (which is great news!) As well as running Social Value 101 back in September with a selection of fantastic local and national speakers I've also been working with the following fab clients
Cumbria Cricket Ltd.
Cumbria Youth Alliance
Ewanrigg Local Trust
Lakes College West Cumbria
Rosehill Theatre (Cardboard Citizens Residency)
Works 4 You/Home to Work
I also continue with my voluntary commitments as a Trustee of Cumbria Law Centre and as a Director at Mountain View Childcare. All this work on different projects for very different organisations is helping grow my knowledge and skills base rapidly so please do contact me if you're looking into 2017 (sorry) and thinking about
Social Return on Investment
Evidence, Measurement and Monitoring
Setting up a charity or social enterprise
Business planning for charities & CICs
Supporting Trustees and/or Directors
Support around Governance issues
(...and general trouble-shooting :-)
I've also been doing some work supporting organisations prepare for their AGM which has been really informative.
I am happy to work on different payment schedules to suit your organisation - some organisations are finding it easier to pay monthly over 6 months or a year for ongoing work rather than finding total costs up front. I look forward to hearing from you. Nicola
PS now house-training is nearly complete I look forward to bringing along my new business partner to meet some of you in the New Year!
"Nicola was called upon to support us with the development of service plans and bid writing. We gained a new ‘reliable pair of hands’. Nicola stepped in at short notice and delivered what she said she would, on time. A real asset to charities in Cumbria." Heike Horsburgh Cadas
