We offer tailored support to charities and other not for profit entities, to help them do business with local government or simply to help them gain a greater insight into local government and the wider public sector. We recognise that many organisations are very reliant on local government or government contracts. This makes them highly vulnerable as budgets become tighter. We help organisations understand this environment and develop options. Other not for profit bodies simply need a greater understanding of the sector in order to progress their organisations aims and ambitions. We help develop your thinking in these areas. We see our role as totally supporting your organisational objectives. Our offers split into XX divisions.
Services > Not for Profit Sector
For the Not for Profit Sector
We can train and develop your people so they really understand the sector, the issues facing it and its needs. We can supply people with significant public and private sector experience to add value to your bid teams or to your management decision making. These can be supplied either on an interim or fixed contract basis.
We also provide regular face to face updates of issues arising in the public sector and examine the opportunities and threats that your organisation may face as a result.
All too often Charities and Not for Profit companies have a reliance on local authority income, but little access to top level decision makers and little understanding of the strategic issues they face. We know of organisations that deliver millions of pounds of services to local councils, but only really have contact with relatively junior commissioning staff and commissioning managers. This is a huge risk.
We can provide real insight into how to shape services that directly address the needs of the public sector. We examine how reshaping services has been achieved on a win/win basis, and look at working collaboratively across sectors, reducing the heavy reliance on a contract culture.
We test our ideas with real public sector leaders so we are always up to date.
Marketing and PR
How do you talk to the public sector in a style that it can understand? We have three decades of experience in getting it right.
Specifically we organise the writing and placing of explanatory leaflets and “thought leadership” pieces. These are done by a dedicated team who know the sector inside out. The team is led by Richard Vize who has edited both Local Government Chronicle and Health Services Journal. You can always be sure that your message will have been translated in a way that really means something to the public sector audience.
Our events team specialise in the organisation of round table events, dinners and receptions, and one day conferences, specifically designed to attract public sector colleagues. We believe that all such events should add significant value to all attendees and we have developed an approach that will not waste your or your colleagues, time.
We recognise that many Not for Profit Organisations are not cash rich and all are time poor. We offer a specific dedicated service to help drive your organisations ambitions whether you are a major public service provider, or an organisation that seeks to influence the sector.
