Nice things people have said

  • “Urban Foundry provided me with valuable work experience and gave me a head start when I graduated”
    Ross Weaver, former Urban Foundry Academy recruit from UWTSD
  • "The Regeneration Swansea Visioning workshop was expertly facilitated by Ben using the theory of change approach. This approach enabled everyone to engage and put their thoughts forward and it was a very enlightening workshop."
    Phil Holmes, Head of Planning and City Regeneration, Swansea Council
  • "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
  • “[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
  • "The mapping exercise was a particularly difficult thing to sell let alone take on and produce results for.  For that all the members of the group will be eternally grateful.  The presentation of the results was innovative, clear and immediately re-useable to further our thinking.  You produced material to order, on time and extremely professionally.  You have an immediate and overall understanding of the issues but also a keen and supportive interest in the arts. Your work in bringing the three consultations together and as a team member in pulling the whole strategy together as a piece was also extremely valuable and helpful.  When we presented the strategy to the Arts Council at the specific feedback conference with other authorities who had undertaken the same exercise, it was abundantly clear that the Swansea approach was light years ahead of the rest.  In particular, we had delivered what we said we would and the material - easily accessible and actually fun to have - was what was actually need to forge strategic ideas for the future for young people and the arts in Swansea. Your contribution to that achievement was vital. Thank you again on behalf of the City and County of Swansea Youth Arts Strategy core working group."
    Robin Hall, Swansea Youth Arts Partnership
  • ‘Thanks to you and your team for absolutely everything. Lovely working with you, and keep up the brilliant work"
    Bethan Elfyn, Horizons Cymru & BBC Radio Wales Presenter
