Edinburgh Young Carers

Edinburgh Young Carers is one of the most well established and largest organisations in Scotland dedicated to working with and supporting young carers. Their mission is to make a positive difference in the lives and futures of young carers through support, information, respite and personal development and training.

Nason Associates was approached to design and develop key funded projects
• A new corporate identity for the ‘We Care’ initiative and a social led website.
Nason Associates then identified, designed and developed an automated accreditation system where schools could choose their levels of accreditation (25 levels and themes were available) the system automated all the delivery objectives / requirements / uploads/ and allowed for the approval of each submission with certification.

Testimonial – “Its all going really well! The branding and marketing strategy that Nason Associates have created along with the digital accreditation system are a winning combination. Automating the process has saved both time and resources allowing us to focus on other initiatives”. Director of Operations

The Faculty Office

The Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury has three functions

• the legal work for the awarding by the Archbishop of “Lambeth” Degrees.

The Faculty Office has its origins in the Ecclesiastical Licences Act 1533. This Act transferred to the Archbishop of Canterbury the power to grant “all maner licences, dispensacions, faculties, composicions, delegacies, rescriptes, instrumentes or wrytynges have byn accustomed to be had at the see of Rome”.

RHDRA

The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway (RHDR) is unique. Eleven 90 year-old steam locomotives and a crew of staff and volunteers dedicated to the spirit of miniature mainline heritage rail travel.

The aim – to engage with people to join the RHDRA, to work together to make sure the children and grandchildren (and the adults and grandparents) can enjoy the thrill of mainline travel in miniature for ever.

Camoes Institute

Camões is a public institute and develops its action internationally. Their mission is to promote the Portuguese language abroad and to foster cultural cooperation.

The Portuguese Language and Culture courses are aimed at school-age students, between 5 to 18 years old, of all nationalities, who want to learn Portuguese, or deepen their Portuguese language skills. The Network in the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands currently has 56 partner schools and 14 universities.

Royal College of Nursing

The RCN represents nurses and nursing, promotes excellence in practice and shapes health policies.

As part of their engagement programme we developed an initiative called ‘Your space’ to keep all staff aware of their office replan and how these changes would affect them. Also, as part of the RCN standards review we designed a customer service booklet to explain the new standards that its members had to abide by.

“Thank you for all the work, it is so different to what we would have produced internally. It looks absolutely fab!”

Portman Group

The Local Alcohol Partnerships (LAPs) Group is facilitated by the Portman Group and includes industry schemes/initiatives and trade associations helping to address a range of night time economy issues including: Tackling crime and anti-social behaviour; Creating safer high streets; Preventing underage drinking; Ensuring responsible alcohol marketing; Improving the local commercial environment; Providing alcohol education and information.

As well as the creation of the LAPG website our task at the conference was to capture delegates’ views at the start of a two year project.  These concerned the challenges and opportunities of the programme with the aim of building a library of stimulating and engaging content for the final programme report.
