Bridge Renewal Trust

Organisation Goals

The Bridge Renewal Trust is a charity based in Tottenham. They were set up in 2009 as a successor body to the Bridge New Deal for Communities (NDC) that led regeneration in Tottenham from 2000 – 2010. Their main purpose is to deliver practical ways that people can live healthier lives – thus playing a part in working towards reducing health inequalities.

What support Economic Change provided

Since 2015 we have worked on numerous projects with the Bridge Renewal Trust.

We initially worked with Bridge Renewal Trust (BRT) on creating a Social Impact Framework for their community asset portfolio, with a specific focus on the Chestnuts Community Centre in South Tottenham. The work was funded by the Impact Readiness Fund, a £1.5 million pilot fund managed by the Social Investment Business for the Cabinet Office.

We also helped BRT develop a CRM specification to help them plan out their requirements and secure funding to introduce Salesforce to their organisation.

We first implemented Salesforce to manage their Voluntary Services project supporting community and voluntary sector organisations in the London Borough, and creating an online directory of services.

We developed Salesforce to manage their Home from Hospital Contracted Service and Health @ The Hut programme funded by the Big Lottery

The Experience & Outcome

“Thank you very much for all of your hard work. We have enjoyed working with the Economic Change team, and have found you very helpful and knowledgeable.”   – Geoffrey Ocen, CEO of the Bridge Renewal Trust

Action Hampshire

Action Hampshire wanted to introduce a new CRM to manage different stakeholder interactions and communications, report on delivery and outcomes on funded projects, manage sales and funding pipeline, provide a new HR system, and create a new membership community.

“Economic Change has worked hard to understand our aims and objectives for using Salesforce and customised the system so it can help us work more efficiently and effectively as an organisation. The team are very approachable, do not use overly-technical language and understand the importance of being clear about the business processes which underpin the use of Salesforce. They have a good understanding of the not for profit sector and its specific needs.”
