Evaluation & Transformation
There has never been so much pressure to justify the case for funding. It is rarely enough to be doing a great job; you need to show the impact of your project or service in a fiercely competitive funding environment.
Developing sustainable partnerships, prospect research, writing major funding bids and managing complex events can be an arduous task, particularly in an age of economic austerity. Many organisations are struggling with a lack of capacity to be able to maximise fundraising opportunities.
Leadership & Governance
The culture of your organisation is determined by your leaders within a context of sound governance.
Strategies shouldn’t be weighty documents gathering dust on the Chief Executive’s shelf. Charities need an ambitious, yet accessible strategic plan, with clear measures of success.
Our fees are based on the task in hand. All projects are tailored to your specific needs. We're sure to accommodate your budget and find it works best to price the job rather than work on a daily rate, so you always know how much you will be charged and won't get stung if the project overruns.
We'd be delighted to have an initial conversation to talk about the challenges you are facing and how we can help, so why not get in touch today for a free no-obligation chat?
