Charity staff are busy with the day-to-day delivery and under pressure to raise funds. It can be hard to step back and see how a funder will judge your charity. Applying my experience of external assessment, I help charities strengthen funding bids and improve communications.
- Critical friend review
Gain a funder’s perspective on all your external communications e.g. website and annual accounts. This service will enable you to improve and manage how your charity comes across to potential funders.
“Emma’s review was very helpful, giving us a new perspective. An outsider will always see things differently, but will not usually send constructive feedback. Furthermore, most visitors to a charity website will not have the specialist knowledge relevant to the sector that Emma brings. We made some changes immediately.”

- Funding bid review
Gain a detailed report on the strengths and weaknesses of your funding bids. This information can be used to improve future bids and also to develop and manage the performance of your fundraisers.
Bespoke training workshops that will equip your fundraisers with the tools needed to write successful funding bids. Workshops show fundraisers how to think like a funder and cover areas such as copy writing, evidence and outcomes.
Please note: whilst I advise and offer training on creating successful bids, I do not provide bid writing services or offer fundraising services for individual charities.
