Together, we can
Make a real difference in the world
People have unlimited potential. They have potential in the arts, science, work, sports, whichever area they choose. However, their potential is often stifled by the world that we live in. Barriers to fulfilment include poverty, poor housing, an education system that disengages people, and the destruction of our environment.
Jim Bennett’s work offers part of the solution in reconnecting people with their potential.
Working with you to strengthen your 3rd Sector organisations, social enterprises and community led and driven organisations, we can create more effective, sustainable impacts.
The bread and butter of Jim’s last 30 years’ professional work has been in strategy development, business planning, finance, and funding.
Helping your organisation deliver trading for social impact.
Working with communities to acquire and commercialise assets for community benefit.
Developing your abilities to access grant, philanthropic and social investment funds.
Assistance in strategy, business, operational and cashflow planning.
Throughout his life, Jim’s drive has been social change. Over the past 35+ years, he has provided leadership in social change organisations, delivering at UK, Scottish and regional levels.
