Age UK Norwich came on-board with Charity Fundraising Ltd in early 2011 and continues to be a valued client, typically receiving 3-4 days of outsourced fundraising support, strategic consultancy and evaluation services from our team per month.
Initially, the lead contact from Age UK Norwich travelled to our offices to work with our consultants face-to-face and we were delighted to work flexibly in this way. Having built a strong relationship, we now maintain contact with the client remotely via email and telephone, scheduling face-to-face meetings when progress needs to be reviewed.
To date, Charity Fundraising Ltd has raised £971,562 for Age UK Norwich and this local partner of the Age UK Federation has seen a return of over 12 times its investment with us. Successes include grants from the Big Lottery Fund, Comic Relief and the Charles Hayward Foundation, which have funded vital support work such as befriending, advice and outreach services for older people (including those with dementia and their carers).
As well as outsourced fundraising, the services we have offered to Age UK Norwich include strategy development, bid review and mentoring and boosting the charity’s internal monitoring, evaluation and community consultation efforts. These measures provide highly valuable evidence of Age UK Norwich’s impact as well as highlighting key areas for improvement and best practice working for disseminating to other Age UKs.
