As a social enterprise, understanding our client has made us the largest social enterprise business support provider in Scotland.

Whether you’re a relatively new social enterprise or a well-established third sector organisation, our team of Business Advisers has the range and depth of expertise and experience to help you tackle the strategic and operational issues facing your organisation.

Working with individual organisations or through our programmed workshops, some of the most common areas in which we assist our clients include:

  1. Strategy development and business planning
  2. Legal structures
  3. Financial planning, management and reporting
  4. Market and business research
  5. Marketing & digital marketing
  6. Sales & business development
  7. Tendering for contracts

As well as providing a high quality, professional service, key to our success is ‘doing with’ clients and not ‘doing to’; building the capacity of third sector organisations in Scotland is core to our purpose as a social enterprise, so we are dedicated to equipping you and your organisation with the skills and knowledge to run a successful organisation – now and in the future.
