The Legacy 2014 Pilot Light programme offers business coaching to social enterprises and charities. By empowering and enabling hand picked charities, such as Active Communities in Renfrewshire, the volunteers and workers can determine their own fate when it comes to sourcing funding, engaging with the community and ultimately the survival and impact of their own causes.

Teams of four are placed with the charities for a year, mentoring and advising the Directors of the charities to design and implement professional business plans for the foreseeable future.

“It’s about the long term, it’s about the strategy…it’s not the immediate impact, it’s the next two three four years.” –  Ken Campbell, Project Manager, Pilot Light.

The project continues for a further twelve months across the whole of Scotland.
