Our support is always demand-led. That means that we tailor our support to the needs and aspirations of our clients – we don’t try to sell you things that you don’t want or need.

Based on our experience, we have developed a unique approach, tools and techniques that recognise and respond to the strengths of small and social businesses.

We deliver a wide range of services that are designed to help you address challenges and change in sustainable ways:

Cross-sector engagement

we bring people together from our extensive and diverse networks and help them to collaborate. You never know who is out there if you don’t ask – and we know lots of interesting people!

eHealth

we bring together our experience in technology, health and social care to deliver practical innovation.

Business planning and modelling

we don’t develop boring business plans. We do help organisations feel confident about their future direction and how they’re going to get there.

Organisational development

we provide support and resources to help address challenges and change in sustainable ways.

Evaluation and impact measurement

we conduct independent reviews of organisations and services. This is extremely useful for tenders and future planning.

Bids and tenders support

we help clients to navigate the complexity of bids and tenders to win new business.

Financial planning

we help organisations to become sustainable and choose financial management systems that suit their size and match their values.

Funding

we help to identify sources of funding and provide support through the grant application process.

Manufacturing planning

we help eHealth innovators to reduce risk by planning for manufacturing in the early stages of product development.

Marketing and communications

we help organisations to get their message across, tell powerful stories and reach the right people.

Procurement support

we help public bodies to engage better and collaborate with VCSE (Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise) organisations and SMEs. This connects commissioners with small and innovative suppliers – and helps them to create more accessible procurement processes.

Product development

we help innovators to co-create products and manage the risks involved.

Project management

we help organisations to deliver projects and develop effective project management processes.
