While setting up www.sewportobello.com in 2012 Elizabeth Spring concurrently supported various third sector initiatives with their fundraising and development.
Since 2012 organisations using her strategic advice and bid writing skills have included CVS Kensington and Chelsea Social Council, international development organisation Learning for Life, the locally based Venture Community Association, the Westway Trust and children's charity Everyday Magic.
In 2012 Elizabeth undertook an interesting contract as interim Charity Director with the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation www.thekandcfoundation.com. The needs addressed by the voluntary sector are often invisible in this rich borough, so the Foundation helps residents to contribute locally and helps charities link into the local wealth. Elizabeth worked with small and medium sized local charities to improve their presentation of their work to potential donors.
Until the end of 2011 Elizabeth was CEO of Elders Voice in NW London www.eldersvoice.org.uk.
She won all the tenders for which she applied there, raising grants and winning tenders ranging from £3,000 to £900,000.
She consulted and worked with the other local service providers across the adult social care sector and developed a methodology to evidence the cost savings created by early intervention and support.
She has a twenty year history of consistently successful development, partnership work and creative high value fundraising across the sector.
Elizabeth Spring has had 100% success to date with local authority and government funding applications.
Her publication for carers,
Moving on From Depression quickly became one of Mind UK's best sellers
In the light of the current economic climate, we have introduced stepped charges for small charities. If your funding has been reduced or cut, please ask about the option to pay a lesser fee upfront. We will then negotiate a percentage of funds raised rather than a daily rate.
