I enable SME charities (small & medium sized enterprises) in the UK to access & secure income to deliver their work. I research trusts, foundations and statutory bodies for fit and relevance and funding successes include large bids to the National Lottery, Charities Aid Foundation, Heritage Lottery Fund, Community Foundations and many industry specific private trusts.

I am grateful to have worked with many volunteers, CEOs, trustees and artists including projects for clients such as East of England Co-Op, St Elizabeth Hospice, Ipswich Community Media, The Orford Organ Project, and A Wing and a Prayer at RSPB Minsmere & Green Light Trust in Suffolk and, Music & Theatre for All and Pan Intercultural Arts, in London.

Currently, I stand as the professional fundraiser, leadership team adviser and independent ad hoc resource. 

I also support Charity Sector Leadership teams through 1-to-1 coaching in person or online.

They also want to make it available for studio providers to rent to generate social value and community wealth through the impact of creativity and culture.
