Likewise is a charity and community centre in Camden with a long history of supporting people across the community. Over the past 30 years Likewise has been at the forefront of innovative approaches in social care, mental health and community. The charity’s approach is to do things with people rather than to or for them, learning from each person in order to provide support and care that is relevant to their context and personality even as these change over time.
Likewise takes a Human Learning Systems approach to their learning and evaluation work, which fits well with their principles and practices, such as ‘relationship first, outcomes follow’. The charity avoids using labels and is not prescriptive about what outcomes a client should want to achieve or what the activity should be for achieving it. This has been highly effective but is quite different to the way that many funders think about social impact. We worked with Likewise’s management team to explore their work and how to articulate its impact in terms that would resonate with a wide range of potential funders, whilst staying true to the charity’s core principles and the language they use in describing their work with clients. We also provided advise on income diversification and resourcing.
Working with Alex was great, he very skilfully held a mirror up for us, distilled lots of information into a compelling proposition and facilitated great conversations.
