Transform Scotland launches social enterprise consultancy – Transform Consulting
Transform Scotland  has today (Thursday 30th) announced the launch of its new consultancy arm, Transform Consulting. It has been set up as a social enterprise specifically for the purpose of reinvesting profits into Transform Scotland’s campaigning work on sustainable transport.
Transform Consulting is Scotland’s specialist research and communications consultancy for sustainable transport. Its work ranges from walking, cycling and road safety through to bus, rail, car share and sustainable tourism.
Working with a range of experts in sustainable transport, Transform Consulting has access to a national network of transport operators, businesses, local authorities and third sector groups, alongside grassroots knowledge and contacts. Now incorporating stakeholder engagement services, Transform Consulting will work closely with Transform Creative  – Scotland’s specialist design agency for the third sector – who provide a range of design and communications expertise including marketing, branding and public relations.
Further details of Transform Consulting’s services and previous work can be found on the Transform Scotland website. 
Commenting on the launch of Transform Consulting, Enterprise Manager Elspeth Wray said:
“We are a social enterprise and all our profits are reinvested in the charitable work of Transform Scotland, the national alliance for sustainable transport. All our work is professionally project-managed and delivered by highly experienced researchers and advisors.”
Transform Consulting builds upon the initial consultancy, Transform Research and Communications (TRAC), that it launched in 2014.
Previous work includes research into understanding the carbon benefits of switching from air to rail travel. Damien Henderson, Scottish Affairs and Media Manager of Virgin Trains said:
“Transform Consulting delivered a persuasive and authoritative piece of research exploring this subject which generated high profile and positive media coverage. They delivered on time and on budget and were a pleasure to work with.”
Transform Consulting have also worked with Sustrans Scotland to draft several key publications, including a Strategic Review document. Commenting on the work, Daisy Narayanan, Deputy Director, Sustrans Scotland said:
“Transform Consulting’s professional and expert team is a joy to work with, diligently listening to what we wanted to see in the final designs and then delivering high quality products on time. Transform Consulting are efficient, high skilled and innovative in equal measure.”
