OC&C Strategy Consultants and Teens and Toddlers

Working with Teens and Toddlers was a truly great experience – they do excellent work for young children and it feels wonderful to contribute to such a good cause. These projects allow us to take on more responsibility and hone our out-of-the-box thinking

Charity partner: Teens and Toddlers
Project type: External market review

Why the project was needed
Teens and Toddlers works with disengaged students who are supported to mentor toddlers in a local nursery. By acting as a role model to their toddler, the teenagers improve their behaviour and are encouraged to progress into Further Education.

In our Driving Impact workshop, our Investment team worked with Teens and Toddlers to scope out what they ultimately wanted to achieve for young people. Following this, Teens and Toddlers wanted to do a review of the market in which they work in, to identify strategic opportunities and challenges they might face in the future.

What the project involved
OC&C is a global strategy consulting firm and longstanding supporter of Impetus-PEF. We’ve been working together since 2004 and over the years OC&C has provided valuable pro bono support to dozens of projects. For this project, OC&C carried out a review of the market in which Teens and Toddlers works. The project involved getting feedback from different stakeholders, desktop research and analysing different programme models. At the end of the project, OC&C made recommendations to Teens and Toddlers for how their programme might appeal to their different funding streams – from central government to charitable donors.

Impact of the project
Teens and Toddlers put forward a number of recommendations from OC&C to their Board of Trustees, which were approved. Teens and Toddlers then used these recommendations to inform their five-year goals, which will help them to change more young lives.
