Our clients are diverse working in the UK and internationally within the social welfare and medical sector


It was a real pleasure working with Abbey Solutions in May-June 2019. John and his colleague Haidee-Laure supported Amref Health Africa to review our trusts and foundations fundraising, including an in-depth assessment of our processes and ways of working, recommendations on resourcing and forecasting for the future, and a new, researched pipeline focusing on high-value prospects. From their initial response to our brief through to the final meetings, they were practical and responsive, and rather than give a generic response, they really focused on what Amref and I need right now to have the greatest impact on our fundraising. I hope to work with them again in the future!


“John Abbey’s strategic input was underpinned by his solid understanding of small charities. This meant that in addition to strategic advice we also benefited from useful practical advice, such as the development of trust pipelines. He was quite pragmatic, for example, in noting our reach is better suited to smaller corporations. We found this helpful to inform the development of a realistic fundraising strategy, which is feasible and achievable.” February 2019


“John has transformed our fundraising with his hard work, commitment and vision. His ability to translate RAFT’s vision into tangible project plans makes him an important and essential part of the Executive Team”. Leonor Stjepic CEO.


This is what Mohammed Razaq told NCVO about our work with WSREC:

“We were very lucky to get the consultant that we did. Penny Cole working for Abbey Solutions was very hands on and gave us lots of templates to use for things like press releases, communications, and other things that we wouldn’t have had a clue where to start. She recommended that we apply for some enterprise support, which we did with her support and were successful. She recommended that we applied for core funding and gave us a list of funders to apply to – it really was a godsend.  She really was fantastic and of huge benefit to us”.


“Abbey Solutions produced a very good, concise report on our fundraising function which was invaluable in taking forward this exercise”. Quarriers


“We have used the Trust services for many years. I must say the amount we have raised over the last 5 years due to their support has run into the hundreds of thousands. We are more than happy to recommend them”. Mark Seymour, British Forces Foundation.


“Abbey Solutions was commissioned to carry out a HNWI appraisal which helped us develop a robust fundraising strategy for wealthy individuals”


“Abbey Solutions supported us with health and education project funding from both UK and Hong Kong based Foundations helping hundreds of young people in the past 5 years”


“Abbey Solutions support with our Trust fundraising made a significant impact and has led to a large increase in Trust income over the years enabling us to help more life-limited and disabled children in hospices with opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have”
