Nice things people have said

  • "On behalf of Jazz Heritage Wales thank you for all the work you put in updating the format for the Before Freedom Primary Schools pack. The updates are of course more accessible as they are on the modern format, and bilingual. In addition, I must congratulate you on the presentation, as the way you have laid it out has really helped to make the content clearer to the reader. Your work will allow this important story of the Slave who arrived in Wales in the 1830s to be shown to much wider audiences through the People’s Collection Wales, and the HWB teachers resource. The timeline was also a tricky piece of work, helping us to work out what was needed, and how best to present it, and it has already been well received. It has been printed out now, for the book to hand round, and looks very good in this format, as well as the slideshow. Again, it seems to really tell the story very clearly, and with both pieces of work, you have delivered them on time, and with the maximum efficiency."
    Deb Checkland, Chair - Jazz Heritage Wales
  • "Urban Foundry were fantastic to work with on our Business Plan for our Hwb y Gors development in Cwmgors – a proposed zero carbon energy, arts and enterprise centre. Urban Foundry were so knowledgeable about the whole social enterprise sector and with a depth of local knowledge and contacts. Urban Foundry really added value to the document, challenged our thinking in a useful way, and made it a lot more fun to do!”
    Dan McCallum MBE, Co-Founder Awel Aman Tawe
  • "One of the most excruciating things about setting up a new social enterprise is deciphering exactly what it is you want, and why. Having someone to unravel the many ideas and help me reach what should have been an obvious conclusion has been a crucial turning point for my business and my career. With your advice, knowledge and support, I now have confidence to take some risks and reach my highest of goals, using the skills, experience and facilities I already have."
    Amanda Tomlinson, Groundswell Dance Company
  • “The Walsall myplace proposal benefitted considerably from the help and support of the team. The capital plan, the work with young people and the partnership aspects were stronger and more sustainable, and the partners were pleased with the outcomes of the various workshops led by the myplace support team.”  
    Ian Cruise Taylor, myplace programme officer for Walsall Council
  • "Urban Foundry undertook a Mid Term Evaluation of the Collaborative Communities project in December 2011 which was a particularly complex piece of work that involved working with the 8 partners of the project and community groups that the project has supported. The work undertaken was very professional and the communication between the company and myself and partners was excellent throughout the working relationship. I would recommend Urban Foundry to any other organisation wishing to undertake similar evaluation studies because of their experience; the quality of their work and their ability to understand the requirements."
    Jane Lewis, Project Manager, Collaborative Communities
  • "Urban Foundry undertook an Impact Assessment of our award winning Chepstow High Street Regeneration Scheme in 2010. Due to unavoidable delays, the tendering process took place in late summer with limited timing to complete visitor surveys. You quickly identified the necessary resources to complete the study within a tight timescale to a high standard. Many Thanks."
    Colin Phillips, Special Projects Manager, Monmouthshire County Council
