Our first meeting is always without charge with a view to understanding more about your needs, requirements and brief. Thereafter fees are charged on a time or project basis.
Having come from the charity and not for profit sector I’m willing to discuss alternatives solutions.
It’s not what you know but who you know. I know and have access to many people. Networking is work. And I have worked at it over many years. Let me help you by introductions and tools on how to make and keep networking simple and effective.
Community development is a broad term that can be applied to anywhere where people commune together and where they might share common values and or interests. A practitioner helps explore issues and programmes that help our understanding of what attracts, retains and sustains individuals. As part of this exploration, I have developed a range of programmes including community audits and how to engage individuals in community development. My primary focus is on places of worship.
The Voluntary Sector
With over 30 years in the sector , I really understand what volunteering is all about. I can help you focus on strategy, review and evaluate goals and help you think through challenges.
I have many ideas for creative programmes as well as simple tips to help you get the most out of your volunteers.
Faith Based Volunteering
I believe that collaboration and cooperation between and across faiths is critical in sustaining civil society in our fractured world. Key is working together on frameworks that provide opportunities for volunteering and social action. I am keen to share my vast experience and understanding of the Faith sector.
