Mind

Economic Change CIC was commissioned by Mind in Harrow to undertake an Impact Evaluation Report and Market Feasability Study to replicate the Head for Work Programme funded by the Big Lottery. We interviewed a range of stakeholders, undertook a competitor analysis, appraised the options and defined a possible franchising package and financial model. We then since evaluated four other programmes for them involving support for refugees and mental health.

“I was impressed with the team’s grasp of the brief, which was completed within a tight timeframe to produce two informative and very well presented reports. The team is pleasant to work with and made every effort to respond to our feedback during the project. We have have used the evaluation reports to successfully secure a further £260k for the Head for Work Programme and to date a further 50% funding for the Hayaan Project.” – Mark Gillham, CEO, Mind in Harrow
