NE Youth recognises that organisations require, from time to time, some additional ‘bespoke’support. Within our staff team we have extensive knowledge, skills and experience available to provide a wide range of support and services.
We very much see this as an opportunity for NE Youth to generate important unrestricted income that will support our own core services in the future. We have been heartened by the feedback and particularly the resultsfrom our recent work in this area and are therefore keen to build and extend these services.
Our consultancy services can help and assist in the following key areas:
- Strategic and Organisational Development
- Business Development
- Quality Assurance – Ambition Quality Mark
- Research and Development
- Project Management and Evaluation
An example of a key contribution within this area of work was at the Barmoor Hub (Formally Ryton and Crawcrook Youth Centre). A Youth Work Development Plan was created and funding sourced to set up two new youth work opportunities for local young people. Support is on-going at the Hub to complete Ambition Quality Mark and to identify further opportunities to engage young people.
“Working with NE Youth has been a thoroughly worthwhile, cost-effective and productive experience that has supported 3 different youth organisations with business planning, financial management, quality improvement and policy development.”
Ray Dodd (Service Manager – Adolescent Youth Service, Gateshead Council)
Quote From Members
“We found ourselves in the position where we needed a little bit of short-term staffing support, so I contacted NE Youth who were able to provide a member of staff at a very competitive rate. The individual they sent was the consummate professional, fitted in with the rest of the team, needed little to no direction; was full of enthusiasm and ideas and when the time came for them to leave, all of the young people were sad to see him go. I wouldn’t hesitate in turning to NE Youth again if the need arises in the future.”
Dave Hewitt (Business Development Manager – Denton Youth & Community Project)
“Working with NE Youth has allowed Auckland Youth and Community Centre to develop a number of key priorities for the next 3 years and beyond. This was through a well organised and thought-provoking development day for both staff and trustees delivered by NE Youth. Building on the experienced knowledge and expertise of NE Youth, it has allowed AYCC to develop better experiences and outcomes for all children, young people and adults who use our service.”
Dave McCreedy from AYCC
