Freeing up your time to focus on the causes that matter to you

We take the time to understand your philanthropic goals and provide the support you need to achieve them. With us handling the administration of your charity, you can concentrate on what matters

In today's society, there is an ever growing trend towards philanthropic giving with individuals, families and businesses wanting to do their bit
There can be various ways of making charitable donations. Whether it be an individual wanting to leave a charitable legacy in their Will, or someone wanting to provide more structured giving by setting up and running a charity, our team can help you choose the option which best suits your personal circumstances, budget and wishes.
Corporate social responsibility is also a popular current area where businesses look to give something back to society. This might be achieved by setting up and running a charity which might share the business name and which members of the business can get involved. Alternatively, you might want to choose a charity of the year or get your staff involved in volunteering for good causes to raise the profile of your business at the same time.
