Charity and Social Enterprise Consultancy
Since our foundation in 1991, we have built a reputation as charity consultants passionate about helping our clients be more successful so that they can create the change they have as their vision.
We provide charities with the expert coaching, strategy and guidance that you need. We were an NCVO (National Council for Voluntary Organisations) approved charity consultancy from 1999 until 2013 when they stopped accreditation and we have delivered advice to a wide variety of charities and social enterprises from start ups to national names.
For start ups or new service development we can help you decide what legal structure you should be, should you be a Charitable Incorporate Organisation(CIO) or structure so you can issue community shares or own property? We can also test your idea using a range of techniques from creating a position document to get feedback to a full feasibility study.
For larger charities we can help with your corporate culture and ensuring you keep on track as you grow. Over the years we have raised millions of pounds to help with new buildings and projects. We consistently give clients the strategic and practical know-how that is required for success, whether it is measured by investment or on-going funding , improvement in reputation, levels of support or social enterprise income. This includes developing and evaluating collaborations between public sector bodies, such as the NHS and councils, and charities .
We believe that as voluntary organisations you need to be aware of the full range of funding opportunities including income generation and to have a broad funding strategy and as charity and social enterprise consultants we can help. This should include capitalising on opportunities that arise from the wider environment such as the government policy on localism. With our knowledge, understanding and expertise we are ideally placed to help with strategic thinking, forward planning, target setting and tailor-made steps, goals and objectives.
We are passionate about making your social impact clear and simple to track so that it creates a compelling story that will attract funding and support.
However it's not only consultancy and advice we offer, it's our tools and links that make us different. Mostly we’ve developed the tools because of an issue a client is facing. Our links come from our long history in the sector and our work with responsible organisations working in the private sector.
