Comic Relief We would utilise Futures Lab funding to fund a Freelance Project Manager to design and pilot (with support from consultants EP:IC and Spark Inside staff) a way of engaging with people who have previously participated in our services. This will enable us to use previous participants’ insight/hindsight to ensure our programmes deliver long-lasting impact on reoffending,employment prospects and life chances. This will also enable us to develop a bank of content from both existing and previous participants (e.g. impact stories, case studies and other content i.e.a film) to support our engagement with funders, major donors, the general public, stakeholders and potential social licencees.
