Key to success

Lister Communications has become one of the most successful telephone system and b2b mobile phone companies in Gloucestershire with its commitment to creating long term relationships with local businesses, charities and organisations.

Rob Lister MD at the firm said Communication is critical to any business. I believe working with our clients at every juncture to assist with their growth is vital to their success.

This is nowhere more evident than with Gloucestershire based registered charity The Nelson Trust. Set up in 1985 as a residential abstinence based treatment centre to support people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction from all over the UK. They offer high quality treatment, support, education and resettlement programmes to give their clients the best possible opportunity of achieving full recovery and independent living.

Angelo Faria, Resources Director at Nelson Trust said The Nelson Trust work collaboratively with other supporting professional agencies involved with their clients and families and regular communication is key to the success of any new project or venture, We rely heavily on Lister Communications to understand our organisational needs and assist with our growth and expansion.

The last two years have been exciting times for the Nelson Trust as they have expanded some of their existing programmes and developed new services serving the most vulnerable people in the county. Regularly updated telephone system and mobile phone services provided by Lister communications have enabled the communication requirements of the charity to expand reliably and cost effectively during this period.

Their ISIS Women's centre which opened in 2010 aims to reduce reoffending, to divert women at high risk of offending away from the criminal justice system and to provide a community alternative to custodial sentences. The key objective of ISIS is to engage women with complex, multiple needs who have not readily engaged with support agencies in the past, to provide a safe, supportive environment and to reduce reoffending by providing the opportunity for transformational change.

They have more than doubled the size of their Family Focus team which provides a service to both adults and young people in the community with complex psychological and social needs. They provide help and support to families on a whole range of matters affecting family life including substance misuse, eating disorders, anxiety, behavioural problems, depression and other emotional difficulties.

Their Aftercare service was set up in June 2011 to help people who have completed drug or alcohol treatment to stay in recovery and reintegrate into their communities after long periods of isolation. The main focus of the service is helping these people to move away from their destructive pasts and become assets to the community they live in, through volunteering and eventually paid employment.

Angelo also said We value Lister Communications knowledge, honesty and customer service. Listers willingness to offer regular support at our fundraising events and sponsorship helps to pay for new developments and pilot programmes. We thoroughly recommend their services to other organisations.
