There's so much to catch up on

Hormoz writes about what has been keeping us busy.

Over the last few months, we have been so busy with delivery, business development and looking after the people we work with, not to mention concentrating on our new brand which Rob Martin wrote about last week, that we’ve not had a chance to let you know the latest news.

Let’s start by mentioning a major development for our small social enterprise.

We had considered for some time how rewarding it would be to deliver a programme within the private sector. Then, in early October 2022, we were approached by two senior EDI (Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) departments of a major private sector organization. They had heard about our successful leadership programme, DELTA, that we have been delivering for disabled managers working within the Civil Service. 

So it is of huge significance to us that our first ever programme within the private sector is for the communications giant, BT Group. We can’t overstate what an important step this is for Result CIC, considering both the size of our organisation and the kind of competition we faced to get this contract. It has taken over 7 months to confirm that we will be delivering this important programme with BT, but this lengthy process has made us look forward to the project even more. Delivery starts in June, and we shall be reporting on progress going forward. We can’t wait to get going.

Since the beginning of 2023, we have been reporting on our work with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU).   

As I write this, we are about to finish that work with both staff and managers. It has, as ever, been a fantastic experience to witness powerful personal development first-hand. There is to be a graduation ceremony in June and talk of further programmes for next year.

Other projects we’re currently working on fall into two categories: disability and work with organisations working with refugees. 

In the disability area, there are two projects to tell you about. 

The first is with NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care and Salford Council. This is an interactive project to agree on some key changes to improve access between D/deaf health service users and Salford’s health services. The project was launched with a captioned information film made with Jane Cordell (speaking) and a second facilitator Richard Jones signing for full access for the service users. 

You can read a blog about making the film and watch it here.

The second project related to disability is with Salford CVS which will provide 1:1 coaching by professional coaches who live with a disability or deafness to 6–8 leaders of Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) who are members of Salford CVS (Community and Voluntary Services). The aim is to get leaders of organisations to work closer together by examining personal strategies for them and their organisations to collaborate more.

We mentioned being commissioned back in September 2022 by Asylum Support Appeals Project (ASAP) who were looking for an audit of their current Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) policies and to provide training on the benefits of lived experience for their staff and trustees. The audit was completed in March by an associate with extensive lived experience, Joshua Samuel. We were then delighted to deliver two workshop sessions, one online for trustees and a full day face to face with staff which were really well received.

Our other project, yet to start, is a consortium of 10 organisations working with refugees in the Greater Manchester area called Step Change. We are due to begin this exciting programme of 1-1 coaching and training next month with representatives of 6 of these organisations.

So, I did say that we are busy? 

In the process, we have made time to strengthen our associate team, as more talented and experienced coaches and facilitators are needed to continue our work. There are other projects in the pipeline so keep an eye open for some other developmental news from us next month. 

If any of the projects above resonate, do contact us.
