Funders / Commissioners
Learning Links works with people and communities to make real and positive impact, improving life chances and futures. The people we help face big challenges from homelessness and unemployment, to loneliness and child to parent violence.
We are leaders in providing local services and running community projects. We know our communities well and understand their needs. Since 1997, we have managed funding and commissions of different levels, from small scale grants to multi-million pound contracts. We have the capacity to deliver projects across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Our goal is to deliver projects that are cost effective and that have the maximum benefit. We always assess and measure impact so that we can learn and improve with each and every project and replicate good work. We will work with you to create a system of feedback and reporting. Additionally, we will keep you up to date on activities and tell you of the project’s successes and any difficulties encountered.
Our key skills include:
- Comprehensive project planning
- Strong management
- Quality and security assurance
- Experience of working as the prime contractor and subcontractor
- Full frontline delivery and project impact evaluation
- Support of in-house HR, finance and administration teams
