New clients for Third Sector Consultancy

As from February we are working with two new clients: Otley Courthouse and the Bridge Church. Otley Courthouse is 20 years old this May and provides a wide range of arts, cultural and community activities – through a small staff team and a much larger team of volunteers of all ages. The Courthouse are keen to develop a stronger Volunteer Co-ordinator role, for much needed new equipment  and to raise funds for core costs. The Bridge Church is a United Reformed Church in Otley (Leeds) and provides a good range of community support services as well as being a place of worship. Funds are needed for a new roof and the remodel and refurbish a much used community room.

£15,000 towards a new minibus for Otley Action for Older People

We are pleased to report that this grant from the Clothworker’s Foundation means that all the £90,000 has been raised for a new, bespoke minibus for this charity supporting older people in Otley and the surrounding area. Part of the process included supporting staff in consulting with the volunteers and members to find out what kind of features the new minibus should have. We have helped Otley Action before in consulting with stakeholders and are about to do so again – with members, volunteers, staff, trustees and external partners.
