Testimonials

  • James was a wonderful source of information and support during the start up of GP CIC. He was so kind and helpful I was overwhelmed by the support and motivation that he offered. He genuinely cared about what I was trying to achieve and understood my needs, he was encouraging and really went out of his way to make sure that I had the tools, information and contacts that I needed to help me get to the next level. It can be very daunting and lonely setting up on your own but I was so inspired and amazed by James’s generosity it made me realise how lucky we are to have people and organisations like this in the world.

  • “When you first emailed me your advice really hit home! I was putting some info together for this organisation and your email put me right back on track, made me take a deep breath and approach it with a different mindset – i.e. not bending over backwards and doing business ‘at any cost’! I told them what was what, how it would need to work, etc, on ‘my’ terms.”

  • The Beehive Project social enterprise has grown out of the work of the drug and alcohol rehabilitation team (DART) based at HMP Rye Hill.

    With the primary objective to manufacture natural beehives, the business has several social purposes, including the engagement of prisoners, production of an environmentally-friendly product and accumulation of an economic surplus to support prisoners on their release.

    “We’ve a long way to go but are chuffed that all our hard work has paid off and been recognised so early into the life of Lads Need Dads after only our first year of delivery.

    “It was all the prep before delivery that assisted in making it a success, I believe, from helping with the business plan onwards.”

As a start up transitioning towards growth, the services and advice offered is invaluable and has helped us develop a more robust governance infrastructure but also alleviated our anxiety so we can focus on development and sleep easier.
