Cranfield Trust (Voluntary Project)

Cranfield Trust Voluntary Project

The Cranfield Trust is a time and talent charity providing former Cranfield MBA's to charitable projects and charities to help them become more sustainable. Projects may include strategic review, specific critical projects and securing long term funding.

Richard and a fellow MBA were assigned to Bedfordshire's Carers in Beds organisation providing support to carers of all ages within the community.

The charity were approaching a critical milestone where circa 90% of their funding from commissioned services and local authorities was up for tender / commissioing.

Richard worked with the trustees and board to develop a comprehensive bid strategy and proposal to secure over £750,000 of annual funding. Additionally the team helped develop more robust processes and action plans to improve delivery.

Richard has worked on other Cranfield Trust initiatives volunteering his time.
