we start from where you are now

There are many stages on a charity’s journey, where there are decisions to be made, obstacles to be overcome. We have the people, skills and experience to help you on your way.

THIRD SECTOR STRATEGY & FUNDRAISING CONSULTANTS


AFTER JUST SURVIVING, WE CAN HELP YOU ON YOUR ROAD TO RECOVERY

After the rigours of Covid, lockdowns and social isolation, organisations face the challenges of adapting to the ‘new normal’. Yet there are uncertainties now that didn’t exist two years ago: questions of where we work and how we communicate, right down to the very purpose behind what we do.

To help third sector organisations like yours come back stronger, we are providing a range of key services to prepare you now for whatever happens next, from strategic planning to governance, to fundraising and marketing, to nurturing the wellbeing and effectiveness of your people.

Why we're Different

 

Action Planning is a community of consultants with three decades of experience serving the not-for-profit sector. We bring a wide range of specialist expertise, as well as a deep and comprehensive understanding of the leadership, funding, personnel and practical challenges that organisations face, and provide expert consultancy and support to help them succeed.

As a critical friend, we deliver strategic guidance and a comprehensive range of valuable, cost-effective, integrated services that increase impact and effectiveness.

While other consultancies specialise in one aspect of charity work, we have expertise across the board, enabling us to identify the best opportunities for each client, provide the most appropriate services for each situation and deliver a seamless solution across multiple needs.

  • Working with Action Planning was an enriching experience for me and the team. We gained valuable knowledge and insights and underwent some extremely useful self-examination, which delivered a strengthened position for my service and our future plans.

  • I was absolutely happy with the service we received from Action Planning. The way David handled the workshop was very good. He threw in a few hand grenades and made us think hard about what we needed to do.

  • Our relationship with Action Planning goes back many years and during my time here we have worked together on a number of projects. Outsourcing and having Hayley assigned to our benchmarking exercise again this year has saved a lot of time. Knowing she will conduct the exercise in a professional and timely manner, offers great peace of mind.

  • David Saint has been around a long time and knows the industry very well. I like his thoroughness – he goes deeper than others to get to the root of a problem – and I knew that the Americans would trust him.

    JENS LEWELING, MANAGEMENT – MEDIA AND NONPROFIT, JOYCE MEYER MINISTRIES, GERMANY
  • I was really happy across the board with the service we received from Action Planning. It’s not often that we get together and think about things in that structured way. The whole process has been a really positive one and David’s report is already impacting on what we’re doing.
