YOUTH FOCUS: NORTH EAST
The support from KEDA Consulting was invaluable. Developing stronger partnerships with the corporate sector is a priority for our charity. Alex and the team at KEDA were able to bring a very high level of expertise and insight, which has helped to transform our organisation's relationship with the corporate sector. We have brokered a number of new relationships with corporate partners, improving our position in the region, and enhancing our longer-term sustainability.
Youth Focus: North East is a regional hub connecting young people and the organisations and professionals who support them. Youth Focus: North East supports a network of over 1,500 organisations and individuals concerned with improving the lives of young people and runs a number of high profile regional programmes encompassing youth employment, education and the arts, health and intergenerational work.
We worked with Youth Focus North East’s senior management and wider staff to develop their corporate offer both in terms of fundraising partnerships and shared value partnerships. We identified partnership opportunities, developed proposals and produced guidance for staff. We provided training and support with a focus on enabling Youth Focus North East’s CEO and key staff to approach companies with a view to developing new types of partnerships.
