Bespoke Services

Away days and forward planning sessions

Taking time away from the day-to-day work of your organisation to reflect and plan for the future can be enormously beneficial. Having someone independent to plan and facilitate a forward planning session for can be enormously beneficial, saving you time, and providing an objective view of the situation. We’d be happy to discuss your needs and plan a session that will achieve your aims.

We can provide a complete review of your financial procedures, reporting and recording which will give you assurance that this important part of running your organisation is fit for purpose. The review will cover budgeting, financial reporting, cash-flow projections, bank reconciliations, payments and receipts, dealing with cash and financial planning.

Organisational reviews

Sometimes a full and totally independent review of your organisation can be extremely valuable. It can reassure you and others that your organisation is well managed and governed, has the right policies and procedures in place, is financially stable, delivers good services and has good forward-planning in place. The organisational review will be tailored to meet your needs, and the first step is to meet with you to discuss what you are hoping to achieve from the review, and agree the best approach for your organisation.
