Crisis Support and Guidance
Let us help you manage a difficult situation.
Our Crisis services are there for you and your charity when you need advice and support when times are tough.
This might be to help you decide what options you have available, how to cut costs, how to restructure your team, or whether to wind up.
We have extensive experience helping charities through challenges and crises, and we have an excellent track record of turning some of the most challenging situations around.
We can help you understand what’s going on, advise you on the best way forward, and help when needed with staff consultations, restructures, sustainability plans and cost-cutting.

Custom crisis support
In a crisis, it can be difficult to know where to turn and what to do next. Boards can struggle with decision-making, and staff and leadership may be too deep in the charity to clearly see a way forward.
We can help you with understanding what is going on and what your next steps should be. Support may include staff and Board consultations, desktop reviews, restructures, facilitated sessions or other actions as needed to help you understand the problem and find a solution.
"I've had the good fortune of working alongside / benefiting from work carried out by Felicia on two occasions - once as CEO at Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) looking at a sustainability review to ensure our charity's finite resources and staffing structure could be adapted to a changing market (post Covid), thereby ensuring the charity's continued success on a firm sustainable footing.
The second time was as Founder CEO at the Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA), as part of a review ensuring our charity had the necessary infrastructure in place for rapid growth. In both cases, Felicia's work was simply invaluable - demonstrating obvious insight, pragmatism and a wealth of expertise (from her combined professional experiences both as CEO and Board member) to shed light on necessary next steps.
Felicia managed in each instance to both embody the authority and directness of an expert whilst simultaneously holding onto the human dimension and need to show kindness and sensitivity to all involved. Acutely aware of budget constraints in (small) charities, Felicia on both occasions also clearly did all she could to provide an excellent service at a very reasonable rate. I would have no doubt at all to recommend Felicia's services to any charity exploring working with her."
