Summer walks
Summer is on the horizon 

Summer is on the horizon and it’s been a good Spring for LynchPin Support. Lots of early morning walks with the dog have helped me think through some pretty complex and challenging pieces of work. I’ve now completed several pieces of work that I started in the New Year for new clients including Sellafield’s Social Impact team as well as the Whitehaven Harbour Youth Project, Amy’s Care and others.


Caroline Travis at Amy’s Care says 


“Our adventure with Nicola Lynch is very much in its infancy. Nicola has produced a wonderful graphic in our corporate colours that illustrates what we do here at Amy’s Care, concisely and accurately. The graphic not only supports our business but is also a great way of celebrating our successes! We look forward to working with Nicola more closely in the coming months.”

Thanks the team at Treble3 for their support in producing these graphics 

I continue to work with existing clients also. I’m out at Calderwood House at the minute working through their annual social impact review:


“Nicola Lynch has been pivotal in ensuring our social impact measurement has been captured. Because she has such an excellent rapport with our service users she can undercover the real grit of what our organisation has to offer. I certainly would highly recommend Nicola, my staff and service users all thoroughly enjoy working with her, we wouldn't use anyone else for this essential, important work.”

I’m excited to be supporting Cumbria Cricket with their development work around the use of cricket as a vehicle to deliver health and wellbeing outcomes. As part of the extension of their reach Cumbria Cricket are working on expanding the women & girls game across the county. (They’ll be holding some fun softball cricket festivals in July so do join in or spread the word.)

I continue to benefit professionally from working across a very broad range of organisations 

from Sellafield to the smallest of start-up social enterprises. Every organisation has the ability to reflect on and grow its creation of social value no matter how much resource it can bring to play.

I keep up my voluntary commitments and continue to run a small SocEnt delivering childcare. I also work as a Trustee at Cumbria Law Centre and am endlessly inspired by the work they do to give a voice to those disempowered by life, circumstance, systems and power. I encourage everyone to find a way to give a little of their personal & professional expertise to a cause they believe in. The Law Centre itself is always keen to expand its skills base within the Trustee Board so do contact me if you’d like to know more. (I also work every day with organisations in need of governance support!)

“Nicola is a very valuable and effective member of our trustee board. She really understands the particular challenges faced by small charities like ours and is experienced in so many key areas from fundraising to working with vulnerable client groups. She has a very supportive and encouraging style, which we greatly appreciate as managers and staff.”
