The Power of Charity

Case Studies

Generation Success

Generation Success is a social enterprise founded by current CEO James Adeleke in 2015. It aims to increase social mobility and provide young people from diverse backgrounds access to the UK and Ireland’s corporate sectors.


KeyRing supports people with learning disabilities, autism, and mental health problems to live independently. It is also the lead partner on the Ancora project. The Ancora project began in 2016, offering a combination of crisis support, long term training, peer support and case work for people in poverty in Oldham.

TLC: Talk, Listen, Change

TLC: Talk, Listen, Change came to Pilotlight in 2019 with ambitions and plans for the future. After completing the Pilotlight 360, the organisation has grown quicker than originally anticipated and the CEO, Michelle Hill, credits some of that to the power of Pilotlight.

Croydon Mencap

Croydon Mencap was established in 1952 to support local people with learning disabilities and their carers. Croydon Mencap's team reached out to Pilotlight for help to define a development strategy and to develop the Board. In hindsight, what the team really needed was permission to trust themselves!
