Pilotlight announces six more charities to join its Pilotlight Programme

Posted 09 Jul 2018 | Our News | Pilotlight Programme

We are delighted to announce that another six charities have been selected to start their journeys on the Pilotlight Programme, and today we are opening applications for support to charities and social enterprises in England and Wales to work with us from September onwards. 

Could your organisation be more efficient, effective and sustainable? If so apply to us now.

Pilotlight Support Manager, Georges Lebreton, says:

“It’s so great to be announcing more charities who have joined the Pilotlight Programme. By opening themselves up to our teams of Pilotlighters who, with their external eye, will be able to provide strategic support and guidance, they will be able to become more efficient, effective and sustainable.

By opening applications for support from us today, we’re hoping to find even more charities who can benefit from our programmes.”

These charities are joining over 600 other organisations who have benefitted from the Pilotlight Programme in the 15 years since the programme started. After working with Pilotlight, 98% of charity CEOs said they had increased confidence in their role and 93% had increased their leadership skills. Two years after the programme charities report they are reaching on average 52% more people and generating 36% more income.

The Pilotlight Programme itself offers 10 months of facilitated coaching from four volunteer senior business mentors (we call them Pilotlighters), supported by a dedicated Pilotlight Project Manager and is free of charge. Teams meet monthly in our office and each project is tailored to the strategic challenges each organisation is facing.

The latest Pilotlight Partner Charities are:
