Cost effective, team-wide training to enable extraordinary social efforts
Founded in 1966, Shelter is the housing and homelessness charity; campaigning for homes as a human right, and for better policies and practices to improve the lives of homeless and vulnerably housed people. And with over 115,000 children homeless in the UK today — some living in damp storage containers, badly converted office blocks and chaotic B&Bs — there is much to be done.
We're privileged to practically support the creative, campaign and digital teams at the charity; helping to build the skills needed to achieve their extraordinary ends on a daily basis — from equipping managers with the skills to lead time-poor and distributed teams, to using more inclusive tools for idea generation and campaign development.
At the heart of the partnership
• 95% of team members engaging with platform content more than 3 times a month.
• 100% team attendance at internal workshops delivered.
• 100% of internal workshop participants responding 'Yes, Definitely' to the question 'Have you learned relevant new skills you can now apply within your teams?'
• 100% of managers participating in Open Manager Cohorts answering ’Yes, Definitely’ to the question 'Would you recommend the programme to other managers within the department?'
"The YCN resources, courses and community have been so helpful to all I've worked on since I joined the team. I love how new topics are continually added and how my feedback has shaped the programme."
