Charities and Third Sector organisations face different challenges from traditional companies.

Not every charity needs the same support and advice. The day-to-day challenges facing your organisation are complex and unique. Our flexible, wide-reaching approach allows us to provide a bespoke advisory service, giving you the opportunity to reach your maximum potential and achieve your goals.

We listen to your requirements, take the time to understand your organisation, and work with you to create a robust strategy and practical solutions.

Our experts can guide you through the minefield of regulation, whilst meeting your obligations, managing your risk and supporting you in your day-to-day responsibilities. Above all else, we understand the vital need for strong financial results and trustee and stakeholder engagement.

Our experts undertake an in-depth analysis of your business, and following consultation, create a long-term results driven strategy for the future.

We work with over 500 charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK and overseas, and provide a complete range of accountancy and business advisory services across a wide range of sectors.
