Looking to the future OUR STRATEGIC PLAN TO 2025


It is clear that in its almost 500-year history, the historic Guild and College Estates will have evolved in response to societal changes. This need to change is never more relevant than now as we sign off on our strategic plan that will take us to 2025. The Trust is a grant making charity first and foremost. However, the impact that Covid-19 has had on society means that we will need to work harder to deliver our support, looking to find new and innovative ways to work in partnership and deliver our vision statement of creating a vibrant and connected community.


AT THE CENTRE OF RECOVERY


It shouldn’t need a crisis to bring a community together but if that is what it takes then we should make the most of it and celebrate being together in this place in this moment. When this crisis has passed, we will need to rebuild and reconnect with each other.


When people lead the way, communities flourish. Through the grants that we make and our unique role in the town we aim to be at the centre of the recovery. Creating a connected and vibrant community is our vision statement and it has never felt more relevant than now that we work tirelessly in support of this.


GRANT MAKING


Recognising that the Trust funds a truly diverse range of charities, we continue to work towards a method of impact assessment that goes beyond simply measuring numbers. We will do this by understanding better the constraints and challenges that comes with assessing impact, along with rewards like an iterative improvement in service. We want to work in partnership with charities and organisational bodies to share best practice and add value rather than creating additional work.


As ever we remain keen to hear from groups and charities that haven’t connected with us before and would like to support initiatives that promote, and champion partnership working or bring like-minded groups together to strengthen ambition.
