Exploring new ways of raising income

In West Sussex and Cornwall our team is working with local partners to develop new partnerships and strengthen existing links to explore new ways of raising income.

The schemes are keen to diversify their income base so that they are less reliant on grant funding and more sustainable. We have worked with the schemes to identify new services these potential partners and commissioners could open up new markets for Home-Start. Our work included mapping opportunities and putting in place actions needed to reach out to new partners to realise these ambitions. In West Sussex this includes a new five year business plan to put in place actions to increase non-grant funding from 5% to 30% in 5 years. Hall Aitken will provide ongoing support to help implement this ambitious programme.
