Strategy development

We can develop the strategy you need, using our expertise in community investment, health, social value, research and digital.

We won’t, though, just write you a strategy and leave you to it. We’ll also provide you with the tools, training and support you need to deliver on your objectives.

Using our expertise to create the strategy you need

Health and housing

We've created and embedded health and housing strategies for NHS Trusts across England, including Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Sussex Health and Care Partnership, and Dorset Health Care University NHS Foundation Trust.

Community investment

Alongside our community investment framework, we also support housing associations to develop community investment strategies, including Livv, Longhurst Group and CHP.


As well as providing a range of research services, we can also develop a research strategy for your organisation, including an evaluation framework, a suite of success indicators and recommendations to improve internal and external data collection

Digital transformation

A digital transformation done well can drive value across the business. The issue is how you realise this ambition.

Our approach will diagnose your current digital challenges, providing you with a tailored package so you can become the data-driven organisation you aspire to be.

Social value

Our social value framework provides you with a strategy to identify, plan and measure your social impact, whether across your organisation or for a new suite of initiatives.

Frameworks we've created recently including those for Edaroth, VIVID and the London Fire Brigade.

Strategic reviews

Using our research and analytical skills, we've conducted strategic reviews of organisations, mapping market opportunities, identifying capability requirements and setting out a series of recommendations for future business growth.
