The key to better decisions – and better results.

Whether your learning goals focus on organisational development, a specific team or a particular project, a learning partnership with Renaisi can help.

Learning drives decision-making and – ultimately – action. A lack of learning limits your organisation’s potential, and prevents your people from adapting, innovating and improving.

Research and evaluation are always helpful: but they’re most effective when combined with in-built learning, particularly in times of change.

How we help

We create effective, practical learning partnerships that help place-based programmes, charities and other social sector organisations reflect on lessons learnt and identify actionable next steps.

Just as every organisation and programme is different, so are our learning partnerships. Our flexible, collaborative approach and wide-ranging experience enable us to create bespoke, agile partnerships that engage your staff or stakeholders and reflect your goals.

In our role as a critical friend, we help you capture, analyse and act on your learning, and provide your teams with time to reflect, assess and improve. The result? Clarity of action and more effective outcomes.

Organisations with a structured approach to learning can benefit from:

  • Making sure that learning is captured and acted on
  • Giving people time to reflect, take stock and improve their work
  • Better team working and experience-sharing
  • The chance to bring in learning from experience elsewhere
  • The ability to share learning externally – giving value to others

Renaisi’s learning services can be combined with evaluations and research or delivered as a standalone service.

Learning in action

We apply best practice and simple interactive tools to facilitate productive interactions – both online and in person. As the learning partner for Local Motion – a place-based funding collaboration of six leading trusts and foundations – we produce ‘rapid learning’ notes for more systematic long-term learning. As the learning partner for City Bridge Trust (CBT), we regularly interview CBT staff and external stakeholders – and distribute and analyse surveys – to support the trust’s learning.

“The combination of Renaisi’s research approach with their service delivery experience really makes for a credible and influential voice to shape our own approach and show how we are applying learning to our practice. I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve worked together to achieve.”

Hannah Woods, Head of Evaluation and Learning Gingerbread.


We have extensive experience of developing learning partnerships for local and national charities, central and local government, and charitable funders – and we can help you, too.
