Strategic and Developmental Support for Haven House

NE London and Essex children’s hospice, Haven House, came to us in 2011 looking for structure and focus. Fundraising was significantly underachieving and in the absence of a Director, the CEO struggled to cope with both roles. Our senior management experience, along with our knowledge of the children’s hospice sector, meant we could provide unbiased strategic and practical support from the word ‘go’.

We facilitated a day of sharing, dreaming and planning with the whole hospice team – helping to agree a range of powerful objectives and tactics that informed both service delivery and income generation. Amongst the outcomes was a strong case for support to give the fundraising team focus.

We then helped Haven House to develop a team to deliver the income needed to fund the plan. Alongside senior management, we revised the Director of Fundraising position – who we then shortlisted, recruited and mentored into their new role. They’ve delivered the new strategy with excellence and Haven House has subsequently achieved income growth year on year, enabling a new level of success with a thriving team.

“Ash and Pebblebeach supported Haven House at a time when our fundraising needed a ‘shot in the arm‘ – their input gave us the platform to grow significantly since.”
