Simon many thanks for your support in being one of the founder members of the Emmaus Bury St Edmunds Steering Group which has now joined forces with Emmaus Ipswich to become Emmaus Suffolk. Your very helpful advice on grant making bodies and funding sources has been very useful as we move to grow the Emmaus presence across the county supporting more homeless and vulnerable individuals.
The fantastic advice of Simon and the Dot to Dot team completely transformed the way we manage our fundraising and finances. We now have a clear strategy and annual plan for campaigns, targeting both new supporters and funders. Whether you’re starting out or reviewing your existing processes, Dot to Dot will be able to get you going in the right direction or transform your existing approach
We engaged Dot to Dot to support us in achieving our accreditation for Suffolk and Norfolk County Council. The accreditation has enabled us to work with more individuals and increase income from these sources and during the process Dot to Dot really helped us develop our business in a sustainable way. Thanks to all involved.
Dot to Dot delivered a bespoke training course for our team here at YMCA Ipswich. The training focused on youth participation, young people’s rights and co-production. The training was delivered with an engaging and insightful approach. It really helped improved our youth engagement programme.
Thank you to Simon at Dot to Dot for the thorough and detailed evaluation of our project Changing Tracks, the report looks fantastic and I am really pleased with the outcome of the process. The final evaluation will strongly support our work and also provides some helpful recommendations to support potential future projects.
We’ve being working with Simon and Dot to Dot since the end of 2016; Simon is so personable and likeable and easy to work with. He understands us, his knowledge and skill has been a real added bonus to us at REACH, plus we’ve had excellent results too.
Simon at Dot to dot has been delivering training for Momentum for a number of years, including our Introduction to Youth Participation training, which is a foundation course for our youth work training programme. Our delegates report that they gain in practical skills and increase their knowledge and skills as a result of this training. We are more than happy to recommend Simon’s training and expertise.
