Funding for Charities

Helping to fund and support great work across the nation

Funding for charities and community groups is an ongoing challenge to the many organisations that carry out vital work in our country, counties and cities with very vulnerable people.We have been fortunate to have spent many years working in this amazing sector, on the frontline and as consultants and we have a very strong track record of delivery that we believe makes a difference to our application writing.

We work very closely with our charity clients, not only to find opportunities and write the funding applications, but also incorporate suitable Awards to shine a very much deserved light on their achievements.We have had considerable successful in this area, both locally and nationally, and it’s been our pleasure to support ambitious organisations to uncover opportunities to grow.

When I was looking to apply for the Small Business Saturday #SmallBiz100 award I knew I was going to need help. My area of expertise is in the technical detail of what we do, and honestly, I find it difficult to shout about the things we do.

I’ve known Rachel for a while now and have seen her bring several of her clients success in regards to bids, tenders & award entries. I reached out to Rachel as I needed the benefit of an outsider to help me craft the message and make sure it was worded appropriately. I also needed someone that was well versed in taking a message and making sure it fit into the guidelines, rules and character counts of a strict application process. We had an initial meeting before agreeing on anything formally, and already she left me with plenty of information, tips & advice. It was clear to me that Rachel is passionate about the work she does and helping others shine their light. This was exactly the kind of help I knew I needed. It can be hard to ask for help sometimes, but Rachel is a true professional and made the whole process easy. She set a plan of action, we set deadlines, she delivered ahead of time, I applied & subsequently won a place in the #SmallBiz100.

I know Rachel will play down her involvement, but in my mind, without her help, we wouldn’t have won our place in the #SmallBiz100 2019. If you’re considering applying for a business award, or have some bids or tenders that you want to make the best impression possible on, I would highly recommend a conversation with Rachel.

We worked with Rachel on a grant funding proposal, it was our first time submitting anything of this nature so working with Rachel was an obvious step to take.

From the beginning Rachel was so helpful with the whole process, giving us the benefit of her vast experience which was really useful.  Rachel set a clear timetable and was really clear in the information that she required from us.  We were able to ask Rachel lots of questions, none of which were treated as stupid.

Rachel was one of my first calls a couple of months later to confirm that we had been successful with securing the grant allowing us to move forward with our plans and support our customers through reopening post COVID.

I would highly recommend Rachel to other business owners looking to put in proposals for funding.

My business, Stuart Mobility, has utilised the services of Ask The Chameleon on more than one occasion and we have been so pleased with the positive results from the collaboration. Rachel is professional, understanding and seems to get under the skin of your business so she knows how you tick. Highly recommended.
