How we help 

Shaping organisations to deliver the maximum impact

We support NGOs, nonprofits and charities to articulate the impact they seek to achieve, define their strategic roadmap and create the right organisation and operating model to achieve their mission.

Examples:

  • Helped a leading cancer research institute to design a new strategy and operating model that enable them to deliver their research objectives while improving their efficiency.
  • Designed a 5 year strategy and plan for a national animal rescue charity looking to expand their services through process, technology and data insight improvement.
Developing innovative and impactful ways of working

We support NGOs, nonprofits and charities to articulate the impact they seek to achieve, define their strategic roadmap and create the right organisation and operating model to achieve their mission.

Examples:

  • Helped a leading cancer research institute to design a new strategy and operating model that enable them to deliver their research objectives while improving their efficiency.
  • Designed a 5 year strategy and plan for a national animal rescue charity looking to expand their services through process, technology and data insight improvement.

Improving efficiency and effectiveness

We help our clients benchmark their performance, identify opportunities to increase impact and efficiency and, deliver change initiatives to improve effectiveness and financial sustainability.

Examples:

  • Reviewed the operations of the UK’s largest health nonprofit to develop a multi-year programme generating in excess of £140m cost savings.
  • Analysed the performance of a care service provider that employs  over 500 staff nationally and identified opportunities to improve the effectiveness of the operations by 60% by optimising rostering, changing staffing, pay  and reward models, standardising delivery models and streamlining support processes.
Increasing and diversifying funding

We identify funding opportunities and help develop fundraising capabilities, commercial models and partnerships. We design and implement social impact bonds and facilitate access to social investment.

Examples:

  • Developed an evidence-based and compelling impact and economic case to help a children’s nonprofit to raise funding for their missing children’s services
  • Helped a nonprofit receive £2.1m funding for two years for the set-up and run of a national centre of excellence to tackle female genital mutilation.
  • Worked with the management team of a medical research organisation to develop the fundraising strategy of their digital tools services.

Evaluating and communicating impact

We design and implement tools for assessing impact and help organisations and charities to communicate their impact story and engage with internal and external stakeholders.

Examples:

  • Articulated the impact delivered by a national advice charity using a theory of change, detailed logic models by projects; and developed the framework and tools to ensure ongoing measurement and analysis.
  • Contributed to the publication of the impact report of a major nonprofit by validating the impact data and supporting the development of case studies.
  • Designed, developed and published the impact report of a mid-sized education nonprofit
