The Directors of Lets Start have extensive experience of working in the not for profit sector – Charities, Community Groups, Social Enterprises and other non governmental organisations, and working in partnership with Local Authorities and other statutory organisations such as Probation, Social Services and Health.

We have a successful track record of identifying need, pinpointing financial support and developing applications and tenders to apply for funding. We have successfully tendered for countless pots of government funding to set up projects in the areas of supported housing, training and employment and other areas associated with supporting vulnerable people.

We have set up partnerships and consortia to both tender and deliver such services therefore have a wealth of experience of multi agency and partnership work.

In the current climate, organisations need to be clear about what they are seeking to achieve and how they will achieve it! Lets Start can assist organisations of all sizes to analyse policy developments which will affect them, facilitate the process of deciding what they want to do, help develop effective business plans an assist in measuring progress against those plans.

Many funding submissions require a business plan these days to say where you are now, where you want to be, what needs to happen in order to get there, who will do what and how will progress be measured.

Lets Start has a wealth of experience in creating and implementing business plans for projects, services and organisations, large and small. Our aim is to  facilitate the business planning process so that you develop the business plan and you own it, not simply implement a business plan we give you.
