Splash Projects Coaching, enhancing impact and purpose

Splash Projects Coaching gives participants an enhanced learning experience going beyond the immersive community project build, for sustainable change.

While our Team and Leadership challenges promote the development of teamwork and leadership skills, our Coaching projects are led by experienced coaches, taking individual and collective learning to an even more profound level.

A coaching leadership style is about empowerment; it’s about inspiring and engaging others, building self-confidence, encouraging self-expression and creative, independent thinking for more effective individual and team development.

During the project, while our Project Leaders will continue to facilitate the flow of the experience, our coaches will be observing and interacting with participants, in preparation for their coaching journey. The participants are primed prior to the project to foster greater self-reflection and awareness that is then discussed and unpacked at key moments around the project, to set-up a personalised coaching plan that can be delivered in-person and virtually.

At the helm of Splash Projects Coaching are esteemed coaches Chris Marren and Patrick Parker, who have a combined 26 years working with Splash Projects and therefore have a deep insight into how coaching can be integrated into a community project.

“Connecting with and understanding our sense of purpose is part of Splash Projects’ DNA,” explained Patrick. “The nature of Splash Projects means they provide the ideal opportunity to observe how we interact in groups, what drives us, what inhibits us and how we communicate, while contemplating emerging patterns in our behaviour that is valuable information for us to work on.

“This fountain of information enables a meaningful coaching experience for long-term impactful change, not only for ourselves, but for those we live and work with – and beyond.”

Key learning outcomes:

  • Greater insight into how you approach an unfamiliar challenge as both an individual and part of a team
  • Analysis of the pearls and pitfalls of your approach including their potential impact
  • Strategies on identified areas to develop and tools to be more effective

Splash Projects Coaching can be customised to each client’s needs and can be provided throughout the project days or be extended to encompass additional, virtual sessions, and focus on individual and/or peer group coaching.

Some of our projects for charities and schools


Working with Splash Projects has been truly remarkable; the experience from start to end was first class. The splash team was extremely professional and ensured that what we received was beneficial for our services users.

Grove Adventure Playground, UK

The end result exceeded expectations. The entire Splash Projects team were all incredibly professional, efficient, effective, reassuring, funny, and absolutely fantastic to work with.

London Youth, UK

We were immensely impressed with the Splash team. The outcome of the work was more than we could ever have expected and the children who use the garden will have many hours of enjoyment because of the efforts of all those who worked on it.

Geoff Kerr, 174 Trust

It was a wonderful experience to work with Splash. Sometimes I felt overwhelmed about the professionalism things were accomplished. I wish it would happen more often because there are plenty of unfortunate and exploited people who deserve it.

Deepashram Orphanage, Northern India

Splash has had an incredible impact. You have created a place to dream and where the possibilities are endless. This is such a tremendous contribution to thousands and thousands of children. You all served as role models for my staff, me and my kids.

Stephen Quirk, Executive Director, Youth Emergency Services and Shelter in Des Moines, Iowa

The project was extremely ambitious and I still cannot believe how much was accomplished in 10 hours. Splash were particularly clever in the way they organised, planned and facilitated the whole event. When the children came on site to experience the new play equipment it really was delightful to watch the amazement on their faces. Personally, I can’t wait to work with you again and watch another miracle unfold.

Anne Warner, Assistant Director KIDS London

We were very impressed on one hand by the technical professionalism of Splash, the result being of very high quality, but also by the used methodology. Splash knew how to plan, guide, support and manage 40 volunteers, representing 19 nations, with a lot of competence, firmness and kindness, while knowing how to stimulate and maintain motivation and harmony in the realisation.
