Testimonials

"As a senior leader with oversight of a number of contracts commissioned by my organisation, I am pleased to provide a very positive assessment of the support given to me by 3SC. The organisation is robust and disciplined in its approach to contract management and lead the way at review in ensuring that providers are contract compliant. The deep dives that are a regular feature of the work ensure that quality information which is specific and measurable is provided to me. Moreover, the detailed knowledge of potential out sourcing provides considerable added value in terms of development and networking. Requests for information from within my organisation are provided in a timely and efficient manner. The data is presented in an easy read format and any requests for further detail is always enthusiastically received. Personnel within 3SC are approachable. I have been impressed with their willingness to learn the business outside of the contract arena this making the negotiations with partner organisations a meaningful and organic experience for all concerned. Most importantly, I have witnessed proactive responses by 3SC in terms of helping smaller potential providers upskill systems and processes within a due diligence context to win contracts that they may well not have won without the expertise provided by 3SC.  "

"Hampshire Cultural Trust are a relatively new 'delivery organisation' and working with 3SC has really embedded good practice and robust systems. Jo Rowe has been very supportive and set out clear expectations during the due diligence, contract negotiations and on-going monitoring. She has really helped us to make sense of the hefty monthly contract performance reviews. Thanks to 3SC we feel we are well supported to deliver a clear and realistic programme.   "

"We started working with Purple Futures in Merseyside in January 2016. 3SC were involved from the start, providing a reporting and monitoring platform that significantly helped us to ensure not only that we had robust procedures to evidence outcomes properly, but also that those procedures grew with the contract, and were flexible to the needs of our learners. Our contract monitoring lead at 3SC was Karen Ballentyne and I cannot speak too highly of her support throughout. Not only was she crucial in ensuring that compliance standards were met, but she also got involved in the courses we ran, making sure she understood the nuances of our delivery, where the stress lines existed with the wider partnership and providing advice and contacts that enabled us to address issues and resolve problems. Without this unique provision, ensuring the smooth implementation and ongoing delivery of the project would have been much harder. "

"SMST (substance misuse support team) began in April 2016; at first the thought of being 'monitored' monthly was terrifying, however, with Jo's support these monthly meetings have enabled SMST to review and streamline data collection processes, have informed me (and the team) of areas for improvement, and have ensured that as a service we are constantly reviewing our practice.  Jo (who is not at all scary) has supported me in my new role as team leader, with suggestions and encouragement on service matters.  One year in, and with the support of Jo (& 3SC) SMST is delivering interventions that meet the needs of our service users, have a team that are invested in it's success, and are delivering  "

"Groundwork in Greater Manchester has benefited from 3SC's quality assurance processes, their online customer management system, and appropriately challenging but supportive monthly performance reviews. Communication with 3SC has been transparent and professional, I would have no hesitation in recommending 3SC as a choice of prime contractor.
