Our approach focused on three areas:
To build our evidence of the need and effectiveness for the programme and inform our recommendations on its design, we reviewed existing scientific literature, government reports and actual case studies, including conversations with existing greenspaces intervention providers.
The proposed funding strategy was informed using an extensive list of public and private funding bodies collated over the course of the project. Potential sources of funding were identified by assessing funders against selection criteria including availability of funds and alignment with our programme’s objectives.
Throughout the process, we worked closely with Venture Trust and Impetus to ensure that we incorporated their key considerations and the project progressed in the right direction.
Venture Trust launched their outdoor therapy service in March 2021.
“Plural were excellent to work with, the team were really engaged and very quickly understood our organisations ethos and need. I was very impressed how quickly they understood and mapped out the market place.
Working with Plural has really fast forwarded our ability to roll out our new service backed by a solid evidence base. The work has also vastly improved our position when seeking funding and articulating the work. Huge thanks to the team at Plural.”
