We offer bespoke consultancy with social purpose and non-profit organisations to support them to develop their workplace wellbeing, leadership, and better understand and measure their impact.
We believe impact is an iterative cycle of research, innovation and evaluation that leads to better understanding, development and evidence of impact. We provide bespoke impact support that is imbedded, meaningful and sustainable.
Leading teams, organisations and networks for social purpose is equally enriching and challenging. Ensuring you create wellbeing in the world, supporting your staff to be well in the process feel good and function well), and keeping yourself well is a balancing act. Our leadership development provides you with a deep awareness of yourself, your context, others, and the range of leadership choices available to you, enabling you to take the best action in any situation.
We support workforce wellbeing as we believe working in our sector can be enormously demanding. We know that those working within our sector do so with passion and dedication that puts others before themselves. We therefore offer wellbeing strategy development and coaching to ensure practitioners, managers and senior leaders get the support they need so as they can feel good and function well in their social purpose.
This need was demonstrated by ACEVO and Mental Health First Aid England in their recent research report: Workforce Wellbeing in Charities.
We support practitioners, managers and senior leaders who work in the area of wellbeing development, to grow a deeper understanding to underpin and develop their wellbeing practice. We do this through training and workshops.

“Having a knowledgeable and well informed trainer. The work around resilience and leadership was particularly interesting. Networking and sharing ideas / solutions was really valuable”
Local authority Health and Wellbeing Coaches
A team of 28 Health and Wellbeing Coaches (HAWCs) came together from across a local authority for a training workshop. They included a range of professional backgrounds including family support workers, community development workers, youth workers, counsellors and social workers. The wellbeing development framework was introduced as a shared framework for them to collectively work within and underpin their practice.
“I like the ACA model as it reframes and simplifies a lot of the implicit knowledge I have already”
“The framework extends how we already work and so deepens practice“
