We are helping charities to thrive. We do this through advice, hands-on support and research.
Creative & effective consultants to the third sector
If you need help to plan a new fundraising campaign, want an outside opinion on how to improve your performance or you want to test something new, we can help. You can pick our brains or we can roll up our sleeves and do it for you. Our consultants are all highly experienced and successful fundraising practitioners who have direct experience of fundraising for causes in the UK and beyond.
Research & Evaluation
Sometimes, advice alone is not enough. We can provide specialists to research new prospective funders, to understand community needs or to really measure the impact of your work. We have access to some great talent. From researchers who already understand your sector to experienced directors who can design and deliver at a strategic level, we have the insight you need.
Business Planning & Feasibility
For any project to succeed, you need robust, evidence-based plans for delivery. We have years of experience of developing compelling business plans that give confidence to those who are delivering life-changing projects. If you need help building a strong business case for a building or a project, then our team is here to help.
The voluntary sector is profoundly dynamic. We work with some of the most creative organisations in the sector so we can share that best practice with your staff, trustees or volunteers.
Whether your organisation is starting out in fundraising for the first time or you're thinking of an ambitious new project, we can help keep you up to speed with bespoke training.
With greater competition for funding and declining public sector resources, successful charities have to be even more focused on working effectively with their communities and their partners. We can help you get organised for really effective impact. This might mean finding new income streams or improving the ones you have. The Funding Centre is a consultancy based in Cardiff, with clients all over the UK and a few beyond. If you want to chat something through, drop us a line.
