Working hard to help charities achieve
We work hard to support charities so they can achieve more – for their beneficiaries and their funders
We helped Open Up Music to design, fund and evaluate a social change programme which challenges attitudes, improves the lives of young people with disabilities and which won the Observer/Nesta New Radical Award
Change Q helped social enterprise RECOOP to use market insight and product design tools to navigate a bewilderingly complex and highly regulated sector. This gave a skilled and dedicated team the confidence and drive to push forward, focusing resources upon activities most likely to yield the highest return socially and financially
We helped the energetic and talented staff at Jessie May to raise £1.2m for nursing care for terminally ill children through its high profile Precious Time Appeal.
At a critical time in Holly Hedge animal sanctuary’s history Change Q helped harness the team’s considerable strengths into a fundraising strategy and a belief structure which sustained the charity’s excellent work and is now building the foundations for future growth.
Training: Developing the skills of charity staff
Change Q Training is Change Q’s charity training service. Our qualified and experienced trainers have over 25 years experience and provide sector-leading training designed to strengthen charities and help them grow:

Covering all aspects of charity activity – from organisational strategy to fundraising strategy – it’s highly efficient, develops team skills and creates strategy which is already part way to implementation by the time it’s complete.
The Strategic Leadership Space
This high impact strategy space is for trustees, leaders and teams. A more effective alternative to the standard review, it affordably connects teams to knowledge about their sector dynamics, helps them to master a range of third sector strategy planning tools and guides them towards a shared view of forward going policy and plans. Useful for annual charity strategy reviews or for programme and policy design, it helps charities and social enterprises to increase impact, create more cohesive teams and improve charity sustainability
Innovative Fundraising Programme
A short, high impact, highly participative blend of consultancy and ‘on task’ training designed for fundraising teams in medium sized and growing charities. Through guided evaluation we first help fundraising teams to understand the strengths and needs of both their audiences and their charity. Then, combining sector experience and innovation tools, we help them to strengthen and design fundraising products which increase supporter satisfaction and fundraising ROI while developing team skills and cohesion
