Our Work

Trusts and foundations

We have been advising grant-makers since we were founded in 2002 and our clients include the Arts Council, Big Lottery Fund and The Stone Family Foundation. Our clients value our insider-knowledge of charities and social enterprises and our flexible approach.

In addition to our client work, NPC’s think tank programmes stimulate new thinking and approaches, for example on cross-cutting issues such as systems change and charity governance.

Almost all of our clients (97%) say they would recommend us to others and more than 7 in 10 believe we influenced their thinking (75%) and action (73%).
