Who

Churches across the UK and Ireland make a lasting difference to the lives of those in need. Cinnamon network equips the local church to set up, deliver and replicate social action projects that transform lives and communities. Interacting with more than 1,000 local churches each year, Cinnamon conducts research, provides advice, delivers training courses and provides practical support to help local churches start social action projects that transform their communities.

Why Fundraising Consultants Ltd?

We responded to an advert in the Christian press about a vacancy in the Business Development team. Cinnamon needed some support with their grant fundraising. They were happy to employ someone in a freelance capacity and, after an interview and a face to face meeting, Sarah was delighted to be appointed to this role. 

What we did

Over the course of a year, Sarah provided a range of support to the Development Team and wider organisation. This included adding capacity to the small team by providing bid writing support and reviewing applications and reports prior to submission. Sarah then went on to help develop a fundraising strategy, providing coaching and ‘sounding board’ support to the Head of Business Development as part of this work. 

What the client says

“Working with Fundraising Consultants Ltd has proved very significant for our charity. During a season of significant transition and development, Sarah provided expert, practical and highly usable advice to help us develop our fundraising strategy, refine our approach and improve our productivity. Having worked with a variety of fundraising consultants, I can only commend the relational and hands-on approach of Fundraising Consultants Ltd, which is distinctive and can help to achieve a step-change in the way a charity considers fundraising.” Paul Garratt, Head of Business Development, Cinnamon Network.
