New and improved income streams
Grant research and bid writing
Good governance is essential for any not for profit organisation. It means that you can comply with your legal obligations and support the structures needed for current and future achievement. From data protection and privacy to HR and ethical fundraising, the basis of good charity governance is thoughtful policy-making and expert practice.
We can work with your board members to build their governance capability. Our consultants know what it takes to do this: they have many years’ experience as board members and trustees of charities both large and small.
Training and mentoring
The importance of developing the skills of your staff cannot be overstated. It boosts their effectiveness, increases retention and gives you a reputation as an organisation which invests in their team, helping recruitment in the future. Meanwhile, for smaller charities, recruiting those with the skills they need may not be an option, with fundraising necessarily falling to other staff and volunteers who may not be specialists. Our consultants are experts in all areas of fundraising and can provide training in any aspect. We can work with your team to deliver a fixed programme covering agreed areas, or provide ongoing mentoring support to help them grow and develop. Whatever your training and mentoring needs, we can help.
Marketing and communications
Charities need to communicate constantly: with donors, supporters, public bodies and staff. Getting your message across clearly and consistently is vital to gaining the support you need to thrive.
We can take over your fundraising marketing for you, so you can focus on delivering services. Or, we can train your staff and advise you on strategy so you can do it yourself.
We can help you understand your audience, through focus groups, surveys and analysing your data to identify what messages will best resonate with them. From copywriting and design, to social media engagement, we have decades of experience in charity marketing. We understand the challenges charities face and the opportunities available to them.
