Here is a first stab at a draft vision and mission for Elsie following our recent development meeting. Please share your thoughts and responses. What have we missed? How can me make it more powerful? More appealing? More impactful?
Leeds: a flourishing city where communities, enterprises and individuals help each other to achieve their potential
Elsie exists to help Leeds enterprises and projects of all kinds succeed, by providing free ideas and advice from a network of supporters. We aim to foster a culture of mutual support throughout the city by constantly growing the number of supporters and people we help.
How Elsie Works
- Gives free support to any Leeds business, charity, social enterprise or community project
- Works through advocates, who gather feedback for those seeking help from panels of trained supporters
- Maintains high standards of competence, confidentiality and integrity
- Does not provide ongoing or more specialised support but can advise people where to find this
