What did people say?

Graham Oatridge, Business Development Manager, YMCA: “The Directory of Social Change (DSC) brought with them expertise, experience and advice, all of which have been fundamental in navigating through programme changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As you would expect, DSC’s approach has been grounded in proven methodologies but the real skill has been their ability to apply these in a real world setting, making it practicable for non-experts to apply.

I am grateful to DSC for their guidance and obvious commitment to providing a high quality end product.”
