This is a key part of the majority of project we work on. We specialise in creating engagement strategies that creative positive relationship with communities and stakeholders. We understand the need and have the skills to engage with the hard to reach groups to ensure all voices are heard.

A large part of our work is helping communities and organisations access the funding they need. We keep up with the changing funding landscape to help our clients kick start a project and become sustainable in the long term. We know what information funders are looking for and can not only find the right fund, but make sure the application has the best chance of success. We have successfully achieved funding from Big Lottery, Heritage Lottery and many other funders.

We can also advice on sustainable project funding, looking a community income generation, sponsorship, donations and a wide range of finance paths.
