We are excited to announce that Franklin Scholars has been picked as one of just seven organisations to participate in the 2019 Spring Impact Scale Accelerator! Supported by National Lottery Funding, the Scale Accelerator programme helps mission-driven organisations gain vital support, skills and perspective to scale up their impact and change more lives.
Over the next year, we will benefit from an intensive programme of support, using Spring Impact’s five-stage replication process. This will improve our strategic planning and help us grow our programmes to more schools over the next few years, through the development of a clear action plan for scale.
Other members of the 2019 Cohort, who will work with us (and alongside us) through the Scale Accelerator programme, include:
Birth and Beyond Community Supporters (BBCS) – a programme supporting new and expectant mums facing challenges and social isolation run by National Childbirth Trust (NCT)
CoachBright – a national social mobility organisation working in schools and universities to help disadvantaged young people improve their grades, confidence and independence
Core Arts – a leading mental health creative education centre in London
Evolve – a social enterprise that is pioneering ways to improve children’s life outcomes
EQUIP – a team enabling quality improvement for under-pressure GPs in Tower Hamlets
Tide – a social movement to further the rights and voices of carers of people with dementia. It works to give carers a voice and the tools they need to transform society.
