The fundraising landscape is changing rapidly.  Public sector cut-backs continue to create pressures on grant-making trusts increasing competition across the board.  Bids need to be stronger than ever before. 

We help clients develop, successfully apply for and deliver projects that secure great outcomes for heritage, people and communities.


Our expertise covers many aspects of our cultural, built and natural heritage.  We have experience of working for and with a range of organisations including Heritage, Transport, Wildlife and Community Trusts,  park and landscape organisations, museums,  community groups and social enterprises, local authorities, National Parks and AONBs , parish and parochial councils.

Phil Collins is currently a member of the SW Committee of HLF and has successfully raised substantial funds for projects and developed sustainable income streams for a number of not for profit organisations.
