Managing Facilities

In 2011 Stepacross was commissioned to take the 3AC charity and its staff through the process of significant transformation following the loss of nearly all funding. One of the key features of the charity – and single biggest cost was the running of its 4 storey community centre building. 


  • We sustainably reduced annual costs 
  • We increased sustainable income 

How did we do it?

We worked with trustees to develop and agree a new vision for the charity and business plan and to deliver the objectives listed below.

  • To improve the financial wellbeing and develop the capacity to achieve long term sustainability by 2014
  • To drive the change required to meet the vision using the most effective Value for Money techniques
  • Maximise the use of our meeting, training, event and office facilities as part of a successful and sustainable business model that delivers added social value
  • Work with others, where it adds value, to deliver co-production activities that drive value for money improvements for the 3AC and for our partners using the hub

Stepacross CIC has successfully secured the short and medium term future of the charity. We are now supporting 3AC as a paid management resource and as a coproduction partner, helping to deliver the Trustees vision outlined in its new business plan.
