Supporting you at this critical time

The timing of our Pearls of Wisdom campaign is remarkable. If ever there was a time that not-for-profits needed free expert advice, this is it!

However, while 56 winners is a significant number, we are aware that thousands of other organisations across the sector are facing the Covid-19 crisis with trepidation: while resources have been lost, the need for their services has escalated.

Action Planning's community of Consultants are keen to help the sector through this extraordinary crisis, so we are extending our Pearls of Wisdom campaign with a new offer.

A 30% discount off selected services.

Whether you need leadership support, vital fundraising advice, legal advice on accessing restricted funds, communications guidance or any of the other consultancy packages featured on this website, book before 31st July and we will take 30% off the usual price.
