Our Services

Tailored support designed to help you grow

We are a specialist grant fundraising and project evaluation consultancy, based in Yorkshire and supporting charities across the UK. We can help you raise the funds you need - and show the world the difference you make.

  • Fundraising

    We have a highly successful track record - from helping small charities set up and grow their trusts and foundations programmes, to leading multi-million pound grant applications for major national charities. We can help you find funders with interests matching your work and then develop successful grant applications on your behalf. We typically secure 64% of all funds applied for.

  • Evaluation

    Many charities struggle to demonstrate their impact. Using our post-graduate social research expertise, we have developed simple and cost-effective processes to help charities prove their impact. We can help you implement easy to administer evaluation tools and prepare external evaluation reports to motivate your teams, improve your work and support your fundraising.

  • Training

    Successful grant fundraising requires a combination of powerful evidence and impactful communications. We are experts in both. We regularly run training programmes with the Institute of Fundraising in Yorkshire and can tailor training in fundraising and evaluation to meet your needs and build your teams’ skills.
