Services for Charities, Social Enterprises & Not-for-Profits

Charities, not-for-profits, social enterprises and trusts play an increasingly important role in delivering public services for the communities they serve. As organisations move away from traditional grant funding to more entrepreneurial trading activity, so the level of risk, complexity and regulation increases. Following recent high profile failures, there is an increasing focus by regulators, funders and commissioners on good governance and transparency of the way organisations are run.

  • Identify and manage risks effectively
  • Review and put in place constitutional and governance arrangements which are fit for purpose
  • Set up successful contracts and partnerships
  • Understand and comply with regulations
  • Navigate public tender processes
