Over a period of 6 months, we worked with their executive leadership team and board of Trustees to develop a framework for the Trust to engage new schools and support internal development and growth. These included reviews of current staffing structures, governance arrangements and internal/external communications.
We also developed an income generation plan which explored opportunities including trusts and foundations, individual giving and events, savings from procurement, increased revenue from community lettings and developing sustainable corporate partnerships. Since delivering this strategic project, Inspire Trust have appointed Oaks to implement all areas of the growth and income generation plan.
