National Lottery Fundraising Consultants


Community Fund – Arts Council and Heritage Fund consultants – Bid writing and Support


We can support your fundraising and development team at every stage of the application process for bids of up to £5 million to the National Lottery good causes. Whether funding is for a capital build or revenue we will be able to assist. There are funding bodies for England, Wales, Scotland and overseas. Here is a link to all the potential funding organisations with the big three list below.


Our experience

Our consultants have many years’ experience in senior management within the Charity and Arts & Heritage sectors. Our lead Lottery consultant, Penny Cole, is prince2 qualified. Penny understands the importance of putting together complex development plans and robust budgets to ensure your national lottery application has the best possible chance of success. Penny also understands the importance of developing realistic outcomes. Strong outcomes are important, but many charities end up being too optimistic. We help to keep the application realistic, robust and achievable.

All our consultants are able to work with your fundraising and development teams seamlessly and can take on any aspect of the application, supported by your team.

We have successfully helped organisations raise significant sums over the years, developing bids of £10,000 to over £2 million pounds.


How we work

We work from our offices in Central London, Cambridge, Glasgow or Manchester, with visits to the client as required.
