Invaluable Partners

The support we have received from Hitched Communities has been second to none, it has allowed us at Nightingales to believe our ambitious ideas are reachable. They have enabled us as a small cic to grow and learn together to reach the outcomes we aim for to meet the needs of our service users, staff and Nightingales as a whole. I believe working with Hitched has been integral to future developments for the service.

Nikki Heywood, Team Leader at CGL – Wirral Ways

The knowledge and skills that Hitched Communities have brought to the table have been exceptional and the approach we have adopted to deliver this work puts us in a great place to achieve our ambitions. They have helped us identify and articulate the core values that drive us, to develop a framework so we can put those values into action, and create a process to measure and improve our impact. It has been a very great pleasure working with Grant and the team, and the benefits of our collaboration are already proving to be invaluable.

Thanks to Hitched Communities for supporting the creation of tools and assets to enable communities to engage effectively with licencing teams across England. It has enabled us to begin coordinating and maximising our limited resources in Cheshire and Merseyside to improve licencing practice.
