We work on challenges that matter
We help public services tackle messy problems.
Across our team we’ve got experience of working on a wide range of challenges across the pubic and social sector. If you’d like to find out more about our work and the impact we’ve had, we’d love to talk to you about it.

What others say about us
Rather than us telling you why we think we’re good, you can read what some of our clients have to say:
“Basis has been able to translate their interactive, fast-paced workshops to an online event. In a one-day ‘pressure cooker’ the Young Impact team got clear on the shared problem, brainstormed and developed new plans – while all of us worked remotely. You have to experience it to believe it.
COVID-19 meant that at Young Impact we had to pivot our plans and work. We needed to get the team together and work through all ideas and options, while everyone was working from their own home. With their ‘Impact Sprint in a day’ Basis delivered great facilitation, technology and structure for us to keep energised, focused and even have fun. Our team actually did not imagine this was possible online, but Basis did it. We loved it and made significant progress in just a single day.”
“The atmosphere created by the Basis team makes learning easy and fun. The variety of experience from the team helps provide a wholesome experience for me and I would definitely take part in future courses.”
“I found your Online Consulting and Falitation course to be invaluable! It has really helped to make working remotely just that little bit more bearable.”
“I found the course very helpful, giving me tools to think about and how to drive change and engage services in that process as equal partners, I am often in a dynamic of pushing the change, this framework showed me a way of looking at that differently and engaging services to find their own solutions and try new paths. The online version of the training was excellent, I can’t say I would have got much more out of the course than I would have in person.”
“Working with Matt was the inspiration behind our approach to codesigning the Opportunity Bank in the Life Chances programme with young people. Finally, and most importantly, he’s helped me embed the Violence Reduction Partnership across Waltham Forest.
We’ve worked on how I can build a committed, engaged, virtual team, that have collective ownership of the programme. It’s meant me training everyone in using MS Teams and Trello, but it’s working and the programme is going from strength to strength.”
