"Felicia was engaged by my local mosque in Sutton to help the organisation convert to a CIO with a new constitution and governance protocols. As part of this work, she conducted a consultation process with community members too. Felicia acted with high levels of professionalism and diligence throughout the process and has been instrumental in the mosque’s successful transition to a new entity."

"Felicia did a fantastic job drawing together key governance change insights for us, and more importantly, advocating them effectively to the board. We appreciated her thorough approach, her clear insights and her impactful communication."

Governance Review

External governance reviews are now expected for all charities that are serious about good governance. We offer a detailed, comprehensive service that offers concrete next steps for your Board's professional development.

Our review uses a detailed approach that examines every element of your Board's functioning and reflects all the expected standards including the Charity Governance Code, the Essential Trustee, the Code of Fundraising Practice and more.

We interview directly every member of the Board and senior managers to ensure a three-dimensional view, enabling discussion and questions to be asked so the process ensures learning as well as a detailed assessment.

Trustee Training

A responsible Board provides regular training to all its Trustees – experienced and new. So many changes happen in the sector every year that are essential to stay on top of to ensure you're meeting your legal duties. This training can be delivered onsite or remotely. 

Support for Grant and Trust Funders

High-functioning, responsible grant funders need to invest time and effort into their own good governance and effectiveness, ensuring they are meeting best-practice standards and holding their grantees effectively to account. With experience working on both sides of the grant funding relationship, we can help your charity to understand its impact, put in place better systems for your grant review and assessment, and help you to help your grantees professionalise.

"We invited Felicia to help us with parts of our current strategic thinking which has included a review of our grant processes. Her report has been thorough and has clearly shown extensive knowledge of charitable funding. She is extremely professional in her approach and has gone out of her way to encourage staff to contribute to the process. We have no hesitation in recommending her to other funders."
