Supporting innovation, improvement and action

We bring decades of experience of delivering research, support and training to the third and public sectors in Scotland. We have designed and facilitated a wide range of sessions and events – from national stakeholder events for Government, to small community cafes.  

Tara and Katy are highly skilled facilitators. We create spaces and events which encourage everyone to get involved, challenge thinking, and develop concrete actions and results. We specialise in working with partnerships and teams facing difficult challenges, where joint working and focus is needed.  

Some examples of our recent work include:
Model for improvement support programme

Tara supported the Community Planning Partnership in East Renfrewshire to progress its use of the Model for Improvement.  The work involved discussions with Community Planning leaders and a series of training and planning workshops with officers from different organisations. Our approach was very practical – interpreting the Model for local use, and building on existing strengths, to improve knowledge and confidence in the approach.
