Policy and research

Charities often need to make the case for policy changes, if they are to have a lasting impact on the causes they care about. We can help you to build the case for change by developing authoritative research, impactful recommendations, and trusted partnerships with policymakers.


We can also train your staff in policy development and influencing skills. This will be tailored to the specific needs of your organisation, but draw upon our extensive experience of securing policy changes, insights into how government works, and how social sector organisations can best build support for change.  

Workshops/speaking engagements

Drawing on extensive work with voluntary sector organisations and published research, we can offer insights and advice for a wide range of audiences. This could be for charities thinking about what the future holds, funders or businesses thinking about how best to support charities.

Please get in touch to discuss your needs.
