Enriching Communities CIC

‘Using Sustaining Communities Network really helped us to achieve our vision in delivering community projects. Being a new CIC, it is difficult to know where to start in terms of where to find funding and help to piece grants together. Sustaining Communities has helped us to write all of our ideas down, put them into applications and help us secure funding. We value the professional service we get from their team and will continue to use their expertise’

Andrew Quinn
CEO, Enriching Communities CIC

Enriching Communities CIC

‘ I have worked in partnership with Sporting communities on a range of projects over the past 3 years, and more recently they have supported us with funding applications. They are a truly values based organisation at every level, and have the skills , knowledge, and expertise to deliver at consistently high standards.
With their valuable contributions, we have been successful in funding applications, and they have helped to develop our information systems to support future bids. We have no hesitation in recommending their services. It is a privilege and a pleasure to work with the Sporting communities team.’

Janette Carr

‘The team went through my company application with me to make sure that everything was in place and due to that guidance I’ve now officially started up my own not for profit CIC.’
