Voluntary and community sector consultancy and support for social enterprise


Whether you need to train your own staff, volunteers or Board, or you're looking for a trainer for a course you want to offer, I can provide courses in all aspects of financial management, from budgeting and booking-keeping to understanding accounts, costing and financial forecasting.




Do you need to review or adapt the way you manage and report on your finances?  I can work with you to make sure you're in control of your finances, understand your financial position, and are able to present information in a way that is easily understood by management, staff and your Board.

Whether you are thinking about starting a new organisation or activity, changing the way you work or what you offer, or you need a business plan for potential funders or investors, I can work with you to create a realistic, achievable plan and robust financial forecasts to support your applications for funding.
