4 Steps

Creating Sustainable Organisations CIC was founded to help support charity and voluntary organisations achieve the highest levels of self-sufficiency across all areas of their organisation. Our various programmes has been designed to enable organisations to become stronger and less reliant on Government and grant funding, building the skills and capabilities of the organisation’s team so that new income generation streams can flourish. Our unique ‘hands on’ project delivery approach helps us to develop relationships with our clients that result in organisations that are stronger and more efficient internally and more competitive externally. We believer it is our duty to share our knowledge and experience in a way that is practical, ethical and promotes sustainability and this is the philosophy that has shaped us as an organisation and lies behind the vision and values that drive us forward.
