In our experience Hometown Plus are a company with conviction, purpose and integrity; an operation that reflect sound social principles and values in their everyday work. They are efficient, effective and consistently focused on getting the job in hand done to the highest possible standard. We have been particularly impressed with their knowledge of social policy; their capacity to quickly profile places and needs, join the dots and compose robust plans for maximising social return on capital development at minimum risk; and their ability to engage and take stakeholders on the change-making journey. We respect their capacity to open doors and build, strong, sustainable partnerships; and their expertise when it comes to securing grant-aid and sponsorship to help resource third sector partners’ project production, delivery and capacity-building for the long-term in the interests of maintaining momentum after developer withdrawal. They are people of real purpose, always have smiles on their faces and are a pleasure to do business with. Panacea are pleased to learn of their development plans and would have no hesitation commending them to other prospective commissioners. Hometown Plus are very good at what they do - adding social value and securing legacy.

The best kind of community engagement is when great collaboration between partner agencies who support community development actually works. Hometown Plus is a special company who have become experts in working with a variety of community run groups and linking them together with various agencies who can help them reach their full potential by finding common ground and promoting social action at a basic neighbourhood level. Project work in communities is essential if community groups are going to ‘fill gaps’ in these austere times of cut backs, especially where local authorities were ‘king pin’ to delivering Social Care Services. The question is, who are the stakeholders, who are the service providers and what do they provide? Hometown Plus will answer these questions by bringing together partners who have a common bond with communities and for those communities, Hometown Plus will introduce a working, asset-based community development scheme or plan which will not only be innovative and creative but will map sustainability over 3 or more years.

To help me get my shop up and running, Hometown Plus had to stretch several stakeholders to the limit. My budget was tight and negotiating prowess limited, but they did a brilliant job for me and my new enterprise. Brilliant

I received massive support from the team setting up my first natural cosmetics shop. The negotiations went smoothly and I was surprised how friendly and professional team was. They are responding very quickly to queries I’ve had and try to help with ones outside of their normal duties. So I can ask about any concerns or queries. Great experience and they are just brilliant!!! Highly recommend to everyone small business like mine or big corporations as their knowledge is endless. I’m pleased I can work with them.
