Market research, business planning, financial forecasting and funding advice for a new community hub in Brechin.
SKS prepared the business plan for Bannockburn House Trust’s successful Stage 2 Scottish Land Fund / Big Lottery application. The award of £648,300 to the Trust, will help the local community to purchase Bannockburn House and its 25 acres of surrounding land for community use.
A number of projects were carried out by SKS to ensure that the Gorebridge Beacon could function appropriately as a community hub: market analysis for the offices / meeting room / general purpose rooms, an options appraisal for the cafe space, business planning, finances and an options appraisal on Governance.
SKS Scotland has worked on both a strategic and task-based level with Scottish Autism since 2010, providing ongoing local PR to support the marketing and fundraising functions, and the development and implementation of a major fundraising campaign. We have also carried out a strategy review of the potential to develop and increase fundraising income within the charity.
