Based in the heart of South Leeds, The Hunslet Club has been helping young people to achieve their full potential for over 75 years. With a membership of over 2,500 young people taking part in their activities each week, they are one of the largest youth organisations in the country, serving the local community in one of the most economically deprived areas of Leeds.
What we did:
The senior staff at The Hunslet Club had a clear proposal for a new project they wanted to develop to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community. The project involved outreach work and the development of satellite provision in venues other than The Hunslet Club itself. It would therefore involve capital and equipment expenditure as well as ongoing operational costs, such as staffing. The priority was to appoint a Co-ordinator for this outreach project.
CML Consultants undertook a search for funders, matching the funders’ eligibility criteria and priorities to the requirements of the Hunslet Club’s project. The output was a written report identifying suitable funders potentially offering different amounts of funding, thus enabling the Hunslet Club senior managers to make a strategic decision about which funder(s) to approach.
“Catherine acts with utmost professionalism at all times and has done a fantastic job for the Club on this project. She presented a well thought-out project outline and concluding report which has proved invaluable.“Operations Manager, The Hunslet Club
