Turnstone Projects works with companies, organisations and communities where shared interests exist.
We do this by undertaking research, guiding and facilitating conversations, building relationships, developing and implementing strategies, creating partnerships and providing on-going support and mentoring. Our three main services are Grantlines, investment and development.
Partnering People and Projects for GoodGrantlines is provided by Turnstone Projects for companies and organisations to collaborate with the community, and other like-minded organisations, where they are engaged, or seek to engage. We provide support and practical assistance to realise local projects together for positive and sustained impact.
Discovery, a clever culture and language fair selection and recruitment tool
Discovery enables organisations to successfully assess potential trainees and applicants whose first language is not English and do not have or, are unable provide, a documented work history.
Asset-based community investment attraction
Our investment work helps community representatives develop a considered, relevant and practical investment strategy from within. We assist by developing tailored instructional guides to identify and audit the area's existing assets, understand the specific culture and values and identify potential industries, services and businesses for expansion, investment and partnerships. This area of work connects into our Grantlines service. Our approach requires significant community participation and the service can be provided remotely or by visiting a community. The approach ensures revisions and updates can be done locally as new opportunities emerge.
Project and program development services
Turnstone Projects assists companies and organisations with specific opportunities as they engage with or expand into a new area or community. Often it involves behind the scenes and on-the-ground research to understand the local opportunities and issues. The research is written in a way that is accessible to a wide range of audiences. This approach fosters participation and collaboration. Clients then make decisions mindful of local priorities, values and considerations. Turnstone Projects usually continues its involvement to develop the strategies for implementation. Often this connects into the Grantlines approach as projects gather interest and come to fruition.
