For Small Charities with BIG Plans
We’re passionate about small charities and helping them to access services, skills and resources that larger charities take for granted. Often people running non-profit organisations are deeply committed to their cause and the people their organisation serves but need help understanding the maze of charity procedures and regulations, developing and implementing a strategic plan, accessing funding or getting training for trustees and staff.
If your small charity has Big Plans then talk to us about how we can help you make them happen.
We are able to combine our communication skills with a broad experience of the not-for-profit sector to help charities get to grips with effective governance, management and communication of their cause. Whether you’re starting up something new or looking for ways to make your existing work better we can help you be more effective in what you do.
New Charity Set-Up
We can help your new organisation understand the range of different models, the difference between charities and social-enterprises and what might work best for what you are trying to achieve. We can deal with all the paperwork involved in setting up your organisation and help you understand what’s involved.
Communicating effectively with those who might fund your work is imperative if you are to survive and grow. We can help you shape your funding messages and develop a strategic approach to fundraising for your organisation as well as helping with the mechanics of crafting finding bids and appeals.
Strategic Development and Training
The voluntary and community sector is a tough place to survive these days, let alone thrive. Thinking creatively and strategically about how your organisation runs, funds itself and stays focused on its objectives and the beneficiaries it serves is critical. We can provide bespoke training and support to help you develop and refine your strategic approach.
Short-term or Long-term Support
Each of our clients has different needs and we respond to them in a way that is tailored to the individual organisation. Some need a short burst of help with a particular activity like registering as a charity or running a one-off fundraising campaign. For others we provide ongoing support which is often particularly valuable for small organisations who can’t obtain all the expertise they need from their existing staff and volunteers.
