FACET was founded in 2002, and is a major provider of health and social care for adults with learning and other disabilities within Fenland and beyond. It provides vocational and accredited training in Independent Living Skills and Skills for Work, offering a wide range of daily programmes and activities including community support, horticulture, woodwork, catering, art and craft, drama, music and employability Skills. FACET has developed a range of accredited and vocational training programmes, supported by the provision of work experience and training placements in community-based enterprises which exist under the organisation’s umbrella, and include a horticultural project, a woodworking enterprise, four charity shops all known as FACET Homes and Gardens and a small catering training enterprise.
Due to their diverse range of operation, FACET were required to develop a fundraising strategy for approval by their Board of Trustees.
Partner organisations provided a framework for mentoring which outlined:
- fundraising and strategic development, and
- action planning.
A completed fundraising strategy has been developed and was sent to the trustee board for approval. This includes both an assessment of current funding and the possibilities for future growth.
