Here’s what some of our clients have said about us
Beacon C&C were commissioned by two of the regions in England to evaluate the Virtual Staff College’s provision for succession planning, which was grant funded by the DfE. In both cases, the reports they provided were extremely helpful. They were well constructed, extremely thorough and clearly written. Perhaps the most striking characteristic of these reports, though, was the way in which the voices of people they had interviewed surfaced in the text. That’s not easy to do, but Beacon C & C managed it with real skill, and without in any way compromising the message. A really good piece of qualitative research.

We have gained enormously from working with Carola to deliver the Social Care Improvement Partner model, and she has undoubtedly made a strong contribution to the success of the project. She has brought sound judgment and clarity of purpose throughout, combined with invaluable expertise in performance management and leadership approaches. A pleasure to work with!
SD, Improvement Manager, Local Government Improvement & Development
In Coventry, Beacon C&C led us through a process which really helped us understand and begin to address our rising looked after population. Carola’s strong strategic approach and outcomes focus helped us gain invaluable insight into what was going on behind the figures, and she injected enthusiasm and a fresh perspective to our project to develop crisis intervention services. Carola is great to work with and her commitment to problem solving is infectious. We hope to continue working with Beacon C&C in the future.
AL, Head of Specialist Services, Coventry City Council
Beacon C&C worked with us to develop an outcomes framework for parenting and family support. The framework will be used to underpin our Strategy to ensure that Coventry is clear about the results that it is aiming to achieve, and as a tool to inform commissioning decisions. Carola brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the project from working both at a national level, and with other authorities, and she has made an important contribution to Coventry’s developing work.
