Welcome to Judith Courts

Social Economy Consultancy

The pace of change in the not for profit sector has never been greater. Positioning your organisation in a fast changing environment, coping with shifting income streams and creating opportunities in challenging times isn’t easy.

My Approach

Because all not for profit organisations and business are different so are my solutions. Whether you’re a local or national charity, a social business or community organisation, my associates and I will listen carefully to you and bring a fresh pair of eyes, a hands on approach and 30 years of professional experience.

We work with charities, community organisations and social business to help you achieve your goals. We’ll involve you in developing the approach you need, work collaboratively with you throughout the consultancy and update you regularly with progress.

What we won’t do is bombard you with jargon, deliver activities we haven’t agreed with you first and exceed our quote.

I specialise in working with you to:

  • clarify your strategic direction and deliver change and growth
  • help you extend your influence
  • find solutions to complex issues
  • design, develop and manage projects
  • secure the funding you need to grow and succeed
  • prove the difference your work makes
  • make sure your governance and legal structures work
  • make your staff teams more effective
  • build lasting partnerships

Whether you want support with research, business planning, staff problems, trouble shooting, fundraising, evaluation or delivering change or just want someone to talk to about options and issues....let me help you grow and succeed.

What Will It Cost?

I have a sliding scale of charges depending on organisation type and size.

I’m always willing to discuss potential projects for no cost and will provide a clear quote and references on request.

So why not contact me and see if I can make a difference to your organisation?
