Ok, so you offer Charity Advice, so what does that really mean?
Our articles can support your work with advice and skills that you may not be able to fund full time or even source at all. We are aware that 90% of UK charities turn over less than 500k. So our fees are tailored to your budget.
Large or small not enough charities seek advice, leadership training and expert experience from others
As a charity advice site we want you to have the the right frameworks for success, establishing a positive culture, quality improvement, continuous innovation and ensuring governance and oversight that has a concern for ongoing development, sustainability and strategy.
Jonathan is an experienced Healthcare COO and Charity CEO. Jonathan says “for many people charity is not the whole answer, but it can be the beginning of journey of support, that is available nowhere else”
Jonathan founded charity checkup after seeing that there were many charities who were rightly focussed on their aims and objectives but needed help with Regulation, Governance, Values and behaviours, Senior Management, IT, Branding Fundraising & Events
amongst others. “I wanted to offer charities the opportunity to get free advice to reach their aims and objectives. in addition I wanted to promote to larger companies the value to them and their business of support for local and community charities”.
What if? It is an important question for any organisation. Its important to realise circumstances can unexpectedly change and to be ready. A cycle of quality improvement and innovation. preparing ahead of time, building reserves, preserving a margin of safety, bounding risk, being creative, continuing to innovate, and honing charitable focus in good times and bad, means you can handle the challenges from a position of strength and flexibility. We learn from the mistakes, we survive.

Keep it Simple, don’t over complicate; be specific, methodical, and consistent. Because we need to turn strategic concepts into reality. A set of realistic practices are more enduring than mere tactics. These practices must be durable, practical, amendable. But if we have simplicity right, there will not be a lot to amend. Successful charities change around 20% of their practice every 10 years, the question is how do we build simplicity and what is the 20% we need to amend.

An audacious goal is clear and compelling, needing little explanation; people get it right away. In an environment of inconsistency and uncertainty, your goals will stand out. How you get there is about how you innovate. No matter how amazing the goal, even with the end in sight, it doesn’t happen in one fell swoop. There is no one killer innovation, no solitary lucky break, no miracle moment. Rather it is 20 miles a day from Lands End to John O’Groats, a series of actions and innovations that will find you embracing the change and, step by step, getting to where you want and need to be.
