What people say about us

The Chair and Trustees were very pleased with the final strategy and it’s now up on our website and we’ve been launching it yesterday and today.

I’d like to thank you all for your work on this.

James Parry, UK Research Integrity Office

always possible is a binding agent that works outside of silos and spreads best practice, useful info and data as it emerges.

Martin Ellis, RSE Group

Thank you for the contribution always possible made and the insights they gave us. It was pitched exactly right and gave a fresh injection of thinking at a time when we were in danger of getting too inward looking.

Martin Harris, Go Ahead Group

I was really impressed at the amount of thought, energy and time always possible put into working with us – we felt like much more than a work project, and they really encouraged us to think deeply about the way we approached evaluation and measured the impact of our work.

Ella Burns, Little Green Pig

Until I talked to always possible, I felt trapped in a dead end, losing momentum fast. They helped transform my perceptions, lifting me out of a ‘what should I be doing..?’ rut and showed me ‘what could I be doing…?’

Oli Blackwell, Meaningful

The team at always possible have made it so we can initiate a new part of the business. This will have a huge impact on communities in the UK. We are all really excited about what it could mean for the future of the company.

Samantha Wheeler, MakerClub

Adeline Offe-Burobey, The Radicle Principle

The always possible team is extremely well-networked and able to facilitate connections at both wide and narrow scopes.

I find always possible webinars very useful. As a community arts organisation we find it very useful to be able to hear the voices of other creatives at this time. We can all learn so much from one another to help navigate our way through these challenging times.
