LankellyChase Foundation

LankellyChase Foundation is a grant giving foundation that works to transform the quality of life of people who face severe and multiple disadvantage. In recent years they have undergone a period of significant change with the appointment of a new Chief Executive and Chair of the Board, a more focused approach on beneficiaries facing specific challenges, and the establishment of a Social Investment Fund. To inform the development of a new business strategy they decided to undertake a review of the views and experiences of a broad cross-section of stakeholders. Following a competitive tender, Amy was appointed to lead the 8 week project in early 2014. She conducted over 40 in-depth face to face and telephone interviews with high-level representatives from social policy, voluntary sector service provision, social service commissioners, other foundations and the media. The findings were analysed and recommendations provided to help to inform the Executive and Board’s development of future strategic business, brand and communications plans.
