Improving impact and positive outcomes for a child bereavement charity

The Harvey Hext Trust logo

Project summary

To enable the charity, the Harvey Hext Trust, to collect data that will help them in successful grant applications and in targeting areas for support. 

Project description

Work with the client in designing a database that will satisfy all desired outcomes. Hand over database together with any training/supporting documentation that is required. After one month’s trial, liaise with client, examine how database has performed so far, make any amendments necessary and demonstrate to client how to obtain any desired outputs.

The technical requirements are simple: a knowledge of databases. This project would benefit a junior analyst with technical expertise but who would like experience in dealing with a client and seeing a project through from start to end. 

How will this project benefit the organisation?

It will enable them to collect data and to identify which areas of the country the memory boxes are being sent to and which hospitals/hospices are actively referring them to families. This in turn will support grant applications/corporate support and positive outcomes.  It will enable the charity to provide impact information and target areas of the country that need more intervention.

Location

Flexible - remote or in person depending on volunteer location. The Harvey Hext Trust is based in Bristol.

Commitment

Time commitment to be determined by volunteer when completing detailed project proposal with the client.

Desired project start date

As soon as possible.

Desired project completion date

3 months from the start date.

Information about the organisation

Images of memory boxes supplied by the Harvey Hext Trust
The Harvey Hext Trust is
 a charity supplying bespoke personalised wooden memory boxes to children who have lost a sibling.

When you lose a child there is often very little support for the bereaved sibling. The memory boxes are a very simple, but effective way of helping a sibling remember their brother or sister and preserve their very precious and personal memories. The boxes can be an important part of therapy to encourage children to show emotions and to talk about their bereavement.
