The charities we’re working with and why
always possible’s research and business support teams are providing consultancy to a number of brilliant charities from across the UK. Looking at their missions in the post-pandemic world, we’re helping to find new evidence of need, engage with new service users in new ways and build updated theories of change.
The pandemic was a rough ride for society’s most vulnerable, and whilst many voluntary sector organisations sadly saw fundraising collapse, those who work to deliver or design support on the frontline saw demand raise by up to 1000% with central and local government relying on them more than ever to reach people in most need.
Age UK in West Sussex and Brighton & Hove is the regional hub of this well-known critical support service for an ageing population. Through a number of intensive research, strategy and consultation projects, we’re helping the team to reach people that don’t yet use their services but could.

A new collaboration for us, sees the always possible team and the SCIE team asking big questions about the future of excellence in social care training, safeguarding and policy-making.

Although just the tip of the iceberg, this list gives a flavour of why some of the UK’s most extraordinary charities ask us to spend time listening, shaping and enabling new eras of growth, impact and productivity.
