Testimonials

what our clients have to say about us

“When Aliona joined us we were outdated in many of the practices needed to run an organisation efficiently and with, for example, all the appropriate governance, financial management and operational policies and practices. These and many more were developed, rewritten and brought up to date alongside the process of measuring the outcomes and impact of our work.

Charities like ours can only exist by applying to other grant-giving bodies for funds. Not surprisingly these organisations do not give away monies lightly and there are rigorous and searching procedures that we need to go through. We have been very fortunate in the recent past, with many successful bids, but notably with a very sizeable and generous grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

This is all due to Aliona’s hard work, her attention to detail, her perseverance and her considerable skills at bid-writing.

All these things were done quietly, efficiently and very professionally and, vitally for us, without changing the basic aims and objectives of our charity.”

– Tony Innes, Chairman, Norfolk Deaf Association

Further testimonials from previous happy clients

“I’d like to report back [to the Family and Parenting Institute] on the very positive input from Aliona. In particular she helped to clarify our thinking in setting strategic objectives, designing an operational delivery plan and apportioning budgets. She gave advice on governance, costings, fundraising, marketing and HR. We learnt more in the time she was with us than we had learnt from other advisors over the past several years.”

“The learning provided a number of tips to keep the tender document easy to read and helped us avoid a number of avoidable pitfalls in presentation and content.  We have subsequently won the countywide tender I was working towards when attending the training – I think this evidences the learning achieved and we intend to apply this learning to other tenders we are involved in  future.  Thank you for your support!”
