Our Social Impact

YELP group

RMWW measures impact through soft and hard outcomes. We don’t look simply at the number of people we have worked with, but the total impact it has made. Our work requires a longer period of time to really affect lives through a combination of intensive intervention; generic and tailored holistic support; building sustainable businesses.
We measure this through distance travelled; testimonials; video / picture evidence capturing journeys of change; session evaluations; generic observation; feedback; business acumen; successful start up. Together they demonstrate immediate and longer term impacts, and sustainable positive change.

YELP Presentation
Though we are a small organisation in number we have made significant social and wider impacts to our service users and community within the last three years.

To date RMWW has worked with over 3000 people through action learning programmes, delivered business workshops, business coaching and mentoring and  consultancy work to both corporates and Individual clients.

PwC hosted our official launch in December 2013 attended by nearly 100 community leaders, corporate organisations, volunteers, funders, service users and community members. This raised funds and heightened awareness. From our Dragons Den style segment young adults received financial investment & support packages; 10 volunteers were recruited; PwC staff mentoring our students; 2 Partners, 1 Senior P.A. recruited to our strategic advisory board.
RMWW engaged in family / community support to approximately 200 following two unrelated local youth murders. We have worked intensively with over 70 students on a longer term basis seeing individuals launch businesses; deliver paid witness sessions; pitch to FTSE 100 / 250 companies; win funds; make sales; significant reduction in re-offending; positive social and economic contributions to society; gain university places; apprenticeships and much more. All have improved communication skills, reading and writing; raised levels of educational attainment and personal development; significant shifts in attitude creating drive and ambition to succeed in the face of adversity. Reconnected with family members; improved parenting; many young people were homeless when they came to us, we work with them and our networks to secure homes; reduced substance & mental health issues and much more. With our women we have seen significant increase in confidence, self-esteem, pitching, sales, and multiple income stream generation.
