‘NGO’ stands for ‘Non-Governmental Organisation’ and we use this term as it is non-specific, so includes many civil organisations, whether registered or not: NPCs, charitable trusts, voluntary associations, not-for-profits, social enterprises, CBOs, NPOs, PBOs, CSOs, CYCCs, Foundations, Professional and Sporting Associations, Home Owner Associations, private and public schools, educational institutions, human rights activist movements, funders, clubs and many more.
KNOW YOUR OPTIONS
Knowledge is power and in a mess of acronyms and miscomprehensions, we clearly articulate the available structures and options.
MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE
We pay attention to your organisation’s specific objects, activities and funding levels, and provide tailored, detailed advice to steer you in the right direction.
BUILD TO LAST
Our decades of experience in consulting to NGOs means we take the long view, and are focused on governance, ethics, credibility and sustainability. We steer you away from quick fixes and help you build/renovate so that your organisation outlasts you.
