Barrie has been invaluable in supporting Allsorts through a time of significant growth and change. Initially he came in to the organisation to guide us through a PQASSO level 2 self assessment, and subsequently made an independent evaluation for the end of a Big Lottery grant term, and an organisational strength review for the beginning of the next Big Lottery term.
All three pieces of work were detailed and thorough. He was able to pinpoint very accurately our strengths and weaknesses, and give clear suggestions for improvements. He gave us a wealth of insights which we just would not have gained without him.
Allsorts is a user-led charity that has grown organically over the years. Barrie has enabled us to step up to the next level, putting into place systems and procedures that mean we are operating more efficiently, with better safeguards in place and with more confidence and resilience for the future. I would happily recommend him to any organisation that wants to achieve the same.
Rachel Levay – Chief Executive, Allsorts.
