A chance to work directly with our experts
Many of our staff and associates are able to offer one-to-one consultancy, drawing on NCVO’s breadth of experience and specialist expertise to create lasting impact with clients. You will be working with people who are at the leading edge of good practice in the sector and who can bring a new perspective that can transform your organisation. You can be assured that however the work evolves, we will be able to involve the right expertise at the right time. We believe this makes NCVO consultancy something quite special.
If you don’t feel you require one-to-one consultancy, we deliver courses and workshops. If you simply need a light-touch diagnostic, organisational health check we offer those too. Whatever the size of your organisation, or complexity of your needs, get in touch to find out how we can help.
NCVO is home to the most up-to-date research and knowledge in the sector. You will be working with people who have experience across the sector, bringing together ideas and information from the largest charities, the smallest, the newest, the oldest and the most innovative. Many of our consultancy projects have involved the NCVO research team, the people behind some of our publications and the NCVO Almanac, a database which provides both an overview and detailed research on what’s happening in the voluntary sector, to make sure we build on the best information about your organisation within the context of your challenges and stakeholders.
