A5cend was set up in 2010 to help third sector organisations become more sustainable and reach their full potential
We act as a catalyst for change
If community organisations are to survive and thrive in this challenging environment, they need to be strategic. They need clarity of purpose, strong governance, a good fundraising strategy, and clear branding, whilst being able to clearly demonstrate and communicate their impact and why their work is important. They also need to prove that they are reliable and worth investing in, as well as showing that they are innovative and unique to help them stand out against the competition.
We challenge and support community organisations to develop their practice, work in new ways and communicate the value and benefit of what they do, helping them to take the first steps towards organisational stability, so that they can continue to help people in their community who are most in need.
Our ultimate aim is to support clients to develop their skills and knowledge, better prove their impact, secure ongoing investment and ultimately be more sustainable.
By helping clients to develop strategic plans, identify and improve areas of weakness, fundraise more efficiently, streamline budgets, develop evaluation tools and work to best practice (whether by policy or governance development) we look to support them to have a clear purpose which is matched by high quality communications, delivery and impact measurement all leading to a more resilient organisation.
