Business Plan for the North East Disabilities Resource Centre
Production of a longer term business plan for NDRC including its merger with Donna Claire Venture. Both charities deal with severely disabled people, NDRC being initially Scope in Sunderland and DCV offering high quality respite care. NDRC had been through a difficult period but had renewed itself, while DCV was fighting for its existence owing to the low prices paid by local authorities relative to its commitment to high quality care. A merger has reduced costs whilst not compromising onquality and the combined organisation is now stable.
