Are you an organisation, business or charity that wants to learn more about working with people from disadvantaged backgrounds? Do you already engage with these groups, but need to explore how to do so in a more effective way?

Whether you are looking for broader advice or more tailored practical guidance on a specific project, we are here to help. Our consultancy work enables organisations looking to work with disadvantaged groups like prisoners and ex-offenders crucial, first-hand understanding of the issues they will be facing and the opportunities that are available.

Consultancy is a journey: you would not set out without a map, travel items, and some knowledge of how to get to your destination. We provide you with these things, enabling you to anticipate what you will need, what you will face, and the best way of achieving what you set out to do.

In addition, StarUp CIC offers free or substantially discounted consultancy services to fellow social enterprises, charities and non-profit organisations. Each organisation will be allocated a dedicated advisor. A detailed plan and summary report is provided at the end of each agreed period of consultancy, to enable you to implement key steps. Thereafter, we will always be on hand to answer any questions and help with any unforeseen problems that may arise.
