Giving and Gaining
One of the most important ways in which our members Gain is from their Giving to the Third Sector - through Pro Bono Consultancy or Mentoring Support. We have an enthusiastic community of active consultants who freely offer their time to help charities and other not for profit enterprises grapple with the day to day issues of running their organisations. We focus our pro bono support where it can have the most impact on improving social outcomes, particularly supporting the activities of charitable organisations that are either unable to pay normal consulting fees or have exceptional cases for support. Overall, we provide the equivalent of £1m of support each year through our pro bono programme.
Our pro bono work is complemented by our Charitable Fund which can provide modest grants on successful application, such as to the Sea Cadets for their equipment.
As our clients and members have put it:
- "Never has the social commitment of the consultancy profession been as clear as it is here"
- "It has been a real eye-opener to work at the top level of such interesting charities"
- "I have done charitable work before, but rarely seen such a direct impact from my contribution"
- "I have not previously had the opportunity to work with such expert, enthusiastic and supportive people"
