Grant Administration and Distribution Testimonials

“Partners since 2012, The Charity Service have worked with us supporting the design and delivery of our third sector Social Investment Fund grant programme. They are a specialist charity who are uniquely placed to support public sector grant programmes. They are an invaluable source of independent expertise and exhibit flair and flexibility as a provider. I would recommend NHS partners to explore what they have to offer as part of the care and support agenda.”

Ian Mello, Director of Commissioning and Provider Management,
NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group

“We have worked with The Charity Service on our most recent grant programme. The support and perspective they have provided to us has been invaluable and their experience of working with other grant programmes has been hugely beneficial to us and our work. I would recommend working with The Charity Service for their expertise of working in this sector.”

Charitable Trust Management Testimonial

In March 2015 Gaeia Global and Ethical Investment Advice opened a new sub-trust for Human Rights and Nursing Awards with The Charity Service.

” I have no hesitation recommending The Charity Service Trust Management Service. They offer a personalised service and a competitive pricing structure. Importantly, their services offer the opportunity for donors to invest ethically with ongoing expert monitoring of the fund. We are safe in the knowledge that all governance and administration arrangements are in hand and that the sub-trust is compliant with current accounting and Charity Commission legislation.”

Charity Testimonial – Reuben’s Retreat, November 2012

“We are a newborn Charity in our infancy & due to the kindness of Ruth, Catherine offered to meet us. In our minds we wanted to learn and work with someone as experienced as Catherine. We spent over an hour with Catherine who spent time seeking to understand where we were at, where we were going and in how The Charity Service could help. Catherine advised as we wanted to trade sadly we could not sit under your umbrella and yet she continued to share her knowledge and experience with us, giving us the confidence to go it alone, so we are now registered with Companies house, are awaiting our HMRC Gift Aid application outcome & have clicked submit on our application to the Charities Commission. Catherine has assisted since and kindly agreed to meet up in the new year so I can learn more from her. In a nutshell ‘The Charity Service’ being very charitable which is very inspiring and humbling to us. We have a long way to go & have no doubt we will work with you guys for something.

Reuben’s Retreat would recommend The Charity Service to others without hesitation, its a great team of people who really do have your charities best interest at heart.”
