Eligible organisations have until 16 March to apply. The offer is aimed at not-for-profit organisations with an annual income of at least £200,000 in the last financial year, and/or at least two full-time equivalent paid staff members in post. Full eligibility criteria, along with application instructions, can be found on the Pearls of Wisdom website.

Action Planning Chairman David Saint said:

“Many not-for-profits are in a position where they would benefit hugely from outside support but find it hard to budget for it. This is an opportunity for them to put budgetary considerations to one side and access the expertise that could transform their organisation for good.

“After 30 years of serving the not-for-profit sector, we wanted to do something that captured the imagination and delivered genuine value. We’ve been able to do this because of the structure of Action Planning. The community of expert consultants that we’ve gathered together over the last 30 years delivers a breadth and depth of expertise that enables us to help organisations right across the sector. The incredible range of consultancy packages on offer through Pearls of Wisdom is a reflection of this.”
