Clare Walker Consultancy CIC
Clare Walker Consultancy Community Interest Company, will continue to deliver the Freedom Programme Online and our Freedom Programme support group for victims. Especially during lockdown we have also been doing a lot of befriending and one to one support, some advocacy work where possible (provided by Clare Walker).
There is also a closed group chat for those attending Freedom Programme, which is peer lead support, overseen by the staff team. All of these activities will continue, funding permitted and provided by Sophie and the team; who are all Experts by Experience.
The work of this Social Enterprise offers services in a way that bigger organisations can’t; purely because of their remit or their aims. We see the work of Clare Walker Consultancy CIC as the ‘gap filler’ and our work sits alongside intervention and provision of statutory and voluntary sector agencies – it doesn’t duplicate. And all with a Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland (LLR) delivery focus.
As Clare Walker Consultancy CIC continues to be creative in its evolving and sustaining, they will be looking at offering workshops to organisations either locally or via online platforms for those, outside of LLR. If your agency no longer has the capacity to deliver your Freedom Programme to your client group. Drop Sophie an email and let Clare Walker Consultancy CIC deliver your group online, on your behalf. For this or anything else within the CIC that you would like access to or more information about, contact email@example.com
