Crawley Community Action are integral to helping us and other local CICs to grow, be sustainable and able to make a lasting impact on the local community.
The support received from Crawley Community Action has been invaluable both in helping us to get started and in our growth over the past 4 years.
Our current strategic plan recognises the value that comes from working with other community groups, particularly when it comes to being sustainable in the long term. This is only possible with the support of Crawley Community Action making those connections.
Without the support from Crawley Community Action, I can honestly say I don’t think we would be up and running and many people would not now be getting the mental health support they are now getting.
Crawley Community Action linked Active Sussex in with delivery providers who are able to reach the most disadvantaged groups and this has resulted in investment that has been used to run activity sessions in Crawley.
Karl was not daunted by the scale of the project and instilled confidence that this was not only achievable but would result in a real asset for the town.
Karl’s insight and advice were key in the successful bid and we were conscious of the time, thought and care he took in providing constructive criticism and on-going advice.
CHC is indebted to Karl Park’s unwavering support and expertise in enabling our project to succeed.
Karl has always been able to answer my questions. If it wasn’t for his support, the whole process would have taken so much longer. It’s comforting to have someone saying you’re doing it right.
We were delighted to become a charity in 2018 and could not have achieved this without the support from Crawley Community Action. It has been invaluable having an organisation we can turn to for advice about the running of the group.
Without the help with funding, there could have been a year when we weren’t doing anything. The event made people more aware of the disability community.
Karl instantly got behind my project. He was really passionate about it which spurred me on more. I never felt overwhelmed. Even though we were talking about things I’d never heard of and knew nothing about, he made it feel accessible and achievable.
