It is a rapidly changing time in the voluntary sector, with a radical shift in the role of charities, changed funding arrangements, new expectations of our work and the way we are held to account.
In response, organisations need to have a clear and comprehensive strategy in place.
A strategy is not just the plan on paper: it is the process by which an organisation reaches agreement about the future. It is about people’s work, the culture of your organisation, the way it works and the changes you want to see.
While the tools for strategy are often well known, taking your organisation – staff, trustees, senior leaders and beneficiaries – on the process of articulating your goals, agreeing your priorities, and developing a robust plan, can be a challenging and exciting time.
While our consultants are flexible and responsive to the needs of individual clients, our support is most frequently in the following areas:
Our support is based on our strategic publication, Tools for Tomorrow: A practical guide to strategic planning for voluntary organisations (PDF, 240KB), which includes practical tools for use in your organisation.
Our free guidance on strategy, impact and organisational performance.
