Background

Established following discussions with over 100 voluntary sector representatives, The Torbay Community Development Trust (Torbay CDT) was formed with the intention of making Torbay a place where all people feel included. The Trust empowers communities, building on strengths and skills through Asset-Based Community Development. “Ageing Well Torbay” is the six-year project aiming to reconnect communities and reduce social isolation amongst the 50+ generation across Torbay. Sarah Warren, AWT Learning Officer talks about her experience using Apricot. 

Client Testimonial

“Our organisation covers many areas of work, which span a variety of different projects in various ways. There is a great need to report on our progress to our trustees, funders and the council. We required a system which allowed us to add in our own data and report separately, while at the same time obtaining a full overall report when necessary. Through using Apricot, there is a significant beneficial difference throughout the organisation, whereby individual projects are able to report on their own progress and managers have the ability to look at the wider picture; all obtainable from one source. The ease of reporting makes our funding and quarterly tracking remarkably quicker and clearer for all of us to see; allowing us to understand whether we are achieving our set objectives, and the areas we need to refocus our efforts on. I am particularly impressed in Apricot’s ability to customise my own forms and reports. While prescribed templates are good to follow, I needed to tailor our system to allow for a much wider range of data input and reporting. Our development work within our Asset Based Community Development requires us to record and measure our data in unique ways, which Apricot has the efficiency and provides the flexibility to do so.” Torbay CDT have been a client of Gallery Partnership for just under two years. Sarah highlights on how working with the team has been over this period. “The level of support has been outstanding from the team at Gallery, I am very satisfied with the swift response to any queries I have had. I know that I can always call or email and will get a reply straightaway.”
