Change Q consultants are experienced strategy and change management consultants, wholly dedicated to furthering the work of charities and social enterprises and to making strategy skills more accessible. We make it easy and affordable for charity teams to stay abreast of change in their sector and to use proven strategy tools which increase charity impact and income.

Our 4 main areas of work are:

  • Strategy. We help teams to develop strategy for delivery of organisational purpose, for fundraising and for marketing, at organisational level or programme level, whatever your organisation’s size
  • Leadership. We provide programmes specifically designed to meet the needs of leaders and organisations in the not for profit sector and proven to be effective
  • Change Management. We can help you to successfully manage change implementation, whether that relates to resource and systems design, delivery efficiency reviews or to change behaviour across whole teams or communities
  • Fundraising Services. We’ve helped organisations to raise millions to realise their aims and can provide mentoring or interim project management to help you raise funds for both capital projects and running costs.

What we do

We work hard to support charities so they can achieve more – for their beneficiaries and their funders

Changing Behaviour

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

Solving Problems

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

Improving Lives

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.

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



Regularly updating strategy typically expands charity capacity by 53% and increases income by almost a third, according to research by the Garfield Weston Foundation. That’s a significant impact.
