Investment Readiness

Our service

The operating environment for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector as well as other organisations is changing rapidly. Hall Aitken has developed Indicate® an online diagnostic tool that can be used in a number of ways as part of a support service we can deliver. Indicate® is a flexible benchmarking, support tool that enables organisations and programme staff to set a baseline, track progress and measure impact. It is highly flexible but already we have used it to support:

  • Contract readiness
  • Investment readiness
  • Social Value readiness
  • Health check assessment
  • Partnership delivery, and
  • Business planning and sustainability.

The tool can be adapted to support, track and measure progress of organisations in the fields of:

  • Employability and enterprise
  • Sport and physical activity, and
  • Health and wellbeing.

The tool is available in online (self-completion) and workshop-based versions. It is a self-assessment tool that asks users to make an honest assessment of their progress against a set of criteria, within specific themes. The tool will also help programme management staff identify projects that need support in a cost effective manner.
