I must admit that the topic ‘bid writing’, while wholly relevant to fundraising, did not fill me with inspiration. However, your presentation, style, effort and experience was captivating. You clearly speak from a vast amount of experience and made the topic come to life through the practical task. I left bubbling with ideas and an renewed drive to get cracking on some things I’d let slide onto the back burner.

income development

Without money coming in no organisation – commercial or charitable – can achieve what it sets out to do. Whether you need an extra pair of hands to get some applications out the door, or want a fresh pair of eyes to review where exactly your income comes from – or where it could – then we can help. 

  • Fundraising audits

  • Grant application preparation to charitable trusts and foundations, public sector bodies and National Lottery distributors

  • Reports to donors and grant makers

Leah is the most productive person I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She manages to do in a couple of hours what would often take someone else a couple of days – and she does it to a consistently high standard. The only thing that would prevent me from recommending her is that I do not want her to become so booked I can’t call on her again, which I am quite sure I will.
