How we work
We can work for you
We can take on any project and complete it to your satisfaction. We charge by the project and can work to your budget.
We can even become part of your team for a period of time.
This is often the most affordable option; we’re not an agency, so there is no VAT or commission to pay; as we are self-employed, you have no associated employer’s costs: NI, holiday pay, pension contribution, sick pay etc. We charge a simple daily rate.
An initial phone call will soon establish if Involving Communities can help.
We can work alongside you
Using this method, between us we decide which tasks need to be completed, draw up a programme of work – with deadlines and outcomes – and work with you, your staff or volunteers until you are completely satisfied.
Ultimately your staff is equipped with the skills to perform the tasks without our help in the future. This reduces your ongoing costs and ensures you, your staff, your board or committee and volunteers are continuing their professional development.
We can set the work for you to complete yourselves
The third way of working is for Involving Communities to work with you to design a project or piece of work, we draw up a programme, with deadlines and outcomes and leave you to do the work yourselves.
Depending on your stage of development or project requirements, we frequently offer our services to charities and community groups on an expenses only basis.
