Over the past year we’ve worked with more than 35 brilliant organisations across the North West and North Wales, reaching over a million beneficiaries in turn. We’re working hard to make sure those we support are better able to deliver sustainable services and maximise their own impact. We’re delighted to report that this year, 63% of our clients told us they had improved their impact, 75% said they were now in a more competitive position, and 83% felt they were now better able to reach their potential as an organisation.

But we do so much more than that, we go directly to the heart of communities, and over the past year we’ve spoken face-to-face with over 1,200 local people. Whether we were listening to their experiences with wellbeing, health and employment, local services and the environment, or their hopes for social prescribing, building relationships and co-producing solutions with real people is at the core of our mission.
