Charities & Not for Profit
Charities and voluntary groups will be hard hit in coming years by the government's Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR).

Nonetheless, there will be opportunities for well-managed organisations.
Against this challenging backdrop, strong management teams supported by specialist professional advisors are all the more vital for charities to achieve their objectives.

We offer the benefits of a team of experts whose experience of advising charities and not for profit organisations is second to none. All our partners and staff are up-to-date with all the latest technical developments.
Many of our partners act as trustees of local charities which means they are ideally placed to give clients the benefit of their first hand experience of business planning, fund raising, and the stewardship of charity assets. We keep a database of other like-minded professionals who may be able to help your organisation.

In response, we offer value-adding advice and assistance to trustees, enabling them to comply with their legal responsibilities, as well as accomplishing their operational goals.
Recognising that you will have other advisors, we are happy to work closely as part of a team and have strong connections with many other professional firms and institutions throughout the region.
As charities have diverse objectives, organisational structures and financial systems, we recognise the need to provide focused services, tailored to the individual requirements of individual clients. These include:
