Outside the Box Development Support

Keeping a group or network going when things get bumpy

Sometimes people put a lot of effort into getting an idea going – a new organisation, a project or a different way of working with other people. Once it is underway you relax. Then things get a bit bumpy: some of the people who were there at the beginning leave or circumstances change. Sometimes it is useful to have someone who can help you see the aspects that are still working fine, what needs updating or changed, and how to get things back on track.

• We can do a review with you of how the project is going now and what is needed for the next phase.

• We can help you identify options for the next stage – whether keeping it steady or planning new developments.

• We can help you check out the ideas and plans with the various people involved – the people who use your service, your partners and the bodies which provide funding – so you know what their ideas and views are.

• We can help you work out how you can explain changes to people, especially when they still want everything to be the way it was (or the way they think it was).
