Client Comments

Westmeath Community Development: Village Planning

“Westmeath Community Development commissioned Blue Moss to undertake an Action Planning Initiative for seven rural towns and village in County Westmeath. From our initial meeting with Clare, we witnessed their enthusiasm and passion for their work in hand. Their interpersonal, communication skills and engagement with ourselves and the respective communities were excellent and never decreased throughout the six months process. They used a participatory process with all seven villages; a process that is interactive and aimed at turning words into actions.  It allowed the process to be productive and excellent relationships were developed between Blue Moss, the towns/villages and external agencies. It was a joy to work with Blue Moss and I highly recommend them.”

Open Government Network: Governance Training

“A useful, interactive session, aimed at the right level. Gave us a clear understanding of CIC structures and Directors’ roles and responsibilities”

“This was a valuable & insightful module”

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council: Community Planning

“ Blue Moss brought a fresh, new and enthusiastic approach to what we were attempting to do which was to ask our local community to help us set a new vision and direction for the Causeway Coast and Glens area with a clear focus on where we wanted to be by 2030. They stepped up to the challenge using innovative facilitation methods that encouraged open discussion and effective feedback from participants at our public events. … Blue Moss were later employed by the Community Planning Team to facilitate twelve workshops for our Thematic Working Groups.  Blue Moss again demonstrated a clear understanding of what we wanted to achieve and their facilitation methods fully engaged participants in the process, resulting in successful collaborative and partnership working.

The Community Planning Team in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council have always found Blue Moss to be professional, enthusiastic, innovative, and always ready to listen to what we needed to achieve.  It has been a pleasure to work with them.”
