MOMENTUM – Getting You Started
Our AHEAD Programme will use the past to build a better future, as we facilitate discussions about the past, using Applied Heritage to learn and to find a common understanding which will promote reconciliation.
For too long the past has meant division and difficulty, our vision is to tackle the difficult issues and to turn heritage to our advantage. The AHEAD Programme has been pioneered by LEXXER Solutions after a number of years working in the heritage sector on a range of Council, PEACE, Heritage Lottery Fund and Community Relations funded projects.
Our programme helps groups to develop local history and heritage as an asset, both in terms of cultural tourism and also in support of improving community relations. From consultancy services to accredited courses based around a facilitated workshops training programme it is designed to meet the PEACE IV emphasis on Building Good Relations. For this we propose to use the Applied Heritage model which has been developed to use heritage to transform society.
The units involved include a contextual course based on a comparative study of the past with the present using the latter as a lens through which to not simply study but also experience the former. The second unit would be based around Applied Heritage Methods and their use in Reconciliation, with the course aimed at both training those who would be identified as leaders and peace makers in their communities in the broader skills and also giving them experience of the course as it might be deployed in a community setting at a lower OCN level.

We have studied the sector, and its potential and developed a range of bespoke heritage based services which will assist those who are custodians of heritage assets. We will provide the skills, services and support to protect, preserve and promote the heritage assets of a range of groups and communities as well as commercial clients such as landed estates, trusts and other companies which have an interest in the past.

The service will help with the often daunting task of project design and grant application writing.
We work with clients to help them develop their won ideas, to work out whicj solution best fits the problem they seek to solve.
Our research services help cleints measure need and demand and present a coherent case which funders will understand. The aim of our team is to help yopu ‘Draw Your Own Conclusions’, not to force one size fits all solitions or project ideas onto you.
Funders quite rightly do not like to see the heavy hand of a consultant at this stage. The logic is clear and we would be the first to support them in saying that is a group is not able to state their own case, or write their own application then doubt shoudl be cast about their ability down the line to run and sucesfully manage that project.
That is why we work with groups to help them form theor own ideas and develop their own initiatives. We use our expereince and knowledge to advise and articulate what the cleint has concluded. However the concepts are very much home grown and reflect the wishes of the client.

LEXXER Solutions have developed a new programme to help groups and organisations respond to the often complicated and confusing range of consultations and calls for responses to government policies and new legislation. With the increased levels of community consultation and planning, as well as funders requirements to see projects supported with surveys and community actions plans groups can often be swamped with consultations and community planning exercises.
Our service will take the burden off organisations and allow them to develop well researched and reasoned responses to a range of consultations. It will add weight and wisdom to the authentic voices of members and others. The legal and public affairs expertise of our team will allow you to amplify your voice and to ensure that it is heard by those who make the decisions.
We love to talk and listen to your opinions ideas and to consider the options with you. Often the issues you are required to respond to are complicated and full of legal or political jargon, so out first step is usually to help you understand it and the range of options that are available.
Then we help you talk to your members and other key stakeholders in order to reflect the breadth of opinion.
The process is all put together in a Programme we have entitled RESPONDS. This stands for Researching the issues involved, Educating those making a response, identifying and engaging key Stakeholders, Preparing your response, though Organised events and activities to stimulate debate, and Negotiating differing opinions. This will result in a submission which will be delivered and disseminated to those opinion formers and decision makers in a Strategic manners to increase impact.
