What we do

The way we work with organisations is driven by an emphasis on systemic and transformational change.

Our Approach

We focus on:

  • collaborative working (taking a relational approach)
  • diving deep and getting to the roots (unpacking root causes)
  • building bridges and breaking silos (coalescing teams around shared goals)
  • offering bespoke solutions (tailoring approaches and solutions to individual needs)
  • making a lasting impact (challenging the status quo, taking a long-term view)

Our Projects

REACH Community Projects

Co-creating Futures is working with REACH Community Projects to deliver a ‘Strategic Support Project’ to help REACH consolidate its strategy and achieve its ambition in 2024 and beyond. The aims of this project delivered through a series of full-day workshops, are three-fold:

  • To consolidate REACH’s strategy and unpack its implication for the wider service and programmatic portfolio
  • To ensure strategic alignment with wider externally-focused priorities, such as partnership development and sustainability
  • To guide the process of organisational development and change to ensure the sustainability of REACH’s overall ambition

Cambridge City Foodbank

Co-creating Futures is providing strategic facilitation support to lead a ‘Volunteer Learning Project’ to allow Cambridge City foodbank to understand where the current strengths, gaps, needs and opportunities within its volunteer programme are, and how they might build on and grow their volunteer programme, arguably a key pillar in their future success. The project is being delivered through a systematic mixed method research project involving surveys, interviews, workshops and secondary documentation analysis. The aims of this project are threefold:

  • Reviewing the strengths and areas of enhancement for the volunteer programme of Cambridge City Foodbank, and its alignment with their strategic ambition
  • Re-envisioning the volunteer programme, how it might be refreshed, and scoping together with the volunteer base, the strategic ambition for where they want to go
  • Articulating the design and framework of a refreshed volunteer programme that will help Cambridge City Foodbank to deliver their strategic ambition.

Co-creating Futures will be initiating a series of strategic facilitation and coaching sessions on a ‘Policy Support Project’ with a charity with the aim to:
