Experienced in working with community organisations of all sizes, Ellen is available via email, phone or videocall to:

  • Discuss the various way organisations can raise funds and which might work best for particular projects
  • Research and share grant funding opportunities
  • Guide organisations and individuals through making funding applications
  • Offer support and guidance on any organisational development needs, such as profile raising or business planning
