Involving Communities Ltd
Helping you see your company, service or project
through the eyes of your clients
Keep your users at the heart of everything you do.
By championing the user experience amongst your staff, board and stakeholders,
you can build a user-centred culture within your organisation.
We’re passionate about the user experience.
We capture opinions and insights and embed them into project, service and organisation design, re-development or delivery.
Are you thinking of applying for funding to develop a new project or to expand the charity?
What’s stopping you?
Are you struggling to prove your service is needed?
You know instinctively that your new idea will work, but can you convince funders there will be take-up?
We can provide Evidence of Need
Are you fit for growth?
Can you prove it?
Do you have an organisational strategy?
Are your policies and processes up to date?
Is the prospect of all the preparatory work preventing you from taking the first step?
Hand the work over to us and we’ll complete it with the minimum of disruption to your day to day operations.
We are qualified fundraisers, so can help with that too either designing a strategy, suggesting fundraising activities and possible funders or making applications.
Recognising that community groups are often talent rich but financially poor, we often offer our services on a Pro Bono – expenses only – basis.
Don’t let the thought of paying expenses put you off, if we can help with advice over the phone, for example, no expenses will be incurred.
How would your employees describe their experience of working with or for you?
Do you know?
Do you care?
Does every member of your organisation share the same mission and vision?
Are you sure?
How do you know?
Do you have a large turnover of staff?
Do you know why?
More importantly, do you want to know why?
doing UX research
costs much less than having a project or development team implement a couple of features during five sprints."
We have worked for many Social Housing Providers. We’ve worked with residents to write Compacts; we’ve helped create robust methods of reviewing services; we’ve trained staff and residents in equality and diversity; we’ve helped prepare departments for audit – which involved reviewing every aspect of service provision.
In 2001, we conducted a community consultation to support the – subsequently successful – application of Newcastle under Lyme for Sure Start funding.
Involving Communities helps you understand your community by involving them in the process.
We apply anthropological research methods and techniques to review your Private, Public or Third Sector business, service or project.
We are more affordable than agencies or recruitment.
