Supporting your journey

How it works

Action Planning is 30 years old this year and to celebrate our Pearl anniversary, our Consultants are giving away over £100,000 worth of consultancy services for free. This is your opportunity to access the expertise that could transform your organisation for good.

There are 56 packages on offer, with an average value of £2,000, reflecting our consultants’ depth and breadth of expertise and experience in the areas of Governance & Strategy, Fundraising & Marketing and People & Practice. They range from facilitated workshops to research and reviews; from creative services to coaching and mentoring.

From 17th January to 16th March, eligible organisations will have the opportunity to apply for up to three packages. Final decisions on the award of each package will be made by Action Planning within four weeks of the closing date and the successful applicants will be announced in April. The work will then be delivered at an agreed date during 2020 and the only cost to applicants will be the reimbursement of reasonable travel expenses, as agreed in advance of the work being carried out.

Before you proceed, please check the eligibility criteria in the Terms & Conditions
