Nice things people have said

  • “Our Reach the Heights funded Olion project used art based activity to engage young people to work with young people who were not in education, employment or training. Measuring the impact of the project was important to us to both satisfy the funding requirements but, more importantly, to share the stories and journeys of the young people who took part. Your extensive experience in this area provided us with credible evaluation that tracked and reported on the project in a sensitive and meaningful way. The project was a huge success and the evaluation celebrated this by providing impressive statistics and personal stories from the participants”.
    Dr Richard Knapp, Head of Corporate Services, University of Wales Trinity Saint David
  • "I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is looking to review their community engagement activity.  You were a joy to work with: incredibly professional, tactful and diligent throughout. You just got on with it and delivered on time and to budget.  Most importantly, your clear ability in this area gained the confidence of my colleagues in the whole consultation process. I will certainly use you again."
    Richard Jarman, Head of Government & Community Relations, Public Affairs Directorate, University of Oxford
  • “[You were] an excellent communicator, empathising with the difficulties faced by community groups whilst working with them to find solutions.  Your judgements were invariably sound and very well thought through - you instinctively knew how to work with, not for community groups - and your cheerful and positive approach to work is a delight!  Feedback from groups was nothing but positive.  All deadlines were met to a high standard and as well as being skilled at higher-level complex development work, you understand that the finer project detail is important too. We have greatly enjoyed working with you and have no hesitation at all in recommending you to others.”
    Barbara Anglezarke, Forestry Commission Wales Cydcoed Manager
  • "[You were] … very professional in your work, highly intelligent and both efficient and effective in the way you perform your duties. You have demonstrated excellent communication skills and worked well with individuals and organisations alike. The presentation of your work is exemplary and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to any group or organisation at any level."
    Gareth Evans, SRP project coordinator
  • "Working with you has been a great experience in helping us really think about how the people living in our communities interact and connect with place, space and each other. You have challenged us to understand the huge potential in our communities for creating great places to live and thrive."
    Andrew Vye, Director of Tai Gwalia
  • “Your strong organisational skills and attention to detail with the ability to problem solve and think creatively are not a usual combination. You are very easy to work with and you always deliver to a high quality.”
    Jeremy Wyatt, Managing Director of Hall Aitken
  • "The 'Cwtch the Bid' campaign was an inspiring effort that spread beyond a city and a region; it was an effort that galvanised the support and imaginations of people all across the country."
    David Jones MP, Secretary of State for Wales at that time
  • "I am pleased to report the successful conclusion of a session at the LDP Public Enquiry earlier today concerned solely with our site. I put this down to all the preparatory work you and others have done to get us to this stage."
    Henry Dare, Trustee - the Morris Estate
  • "Oriel Science's pop-up exhibition gallery was constructed in 6 days in a commercial premises in Swansea’s city centre. Swansea University employed Urban Foundry to be our venue’s site manager and you superbly oversaw this complex and time-critical project. We launched on time with everything in place and the visitor numbers to the gallery are a testimony to the project’s success, which relied heavily on your experience, knowledge and organisational skills."
    Professor Chris Allton, Swansea University
  • "Urban Foundry worked with us on a whole Farm visioning event and delivered training on outcomes monitoring. The work is thorough, professional and grounded in a clear understanding of the needs of third sector organisations and the environment in which we operate. We’re planning to use them again!"
    Phil Budd, Director, Swansea Community Farm
