Consultancy, facilitation & fundraising
After working in senior positions in the arts and third sectors for nearly 15 years, I founded my consultancy (under the banner Emma Collins Consultancy) to support vital and inspiring organisations in the arts, creative, entrepreneurial and social impact sectors (especially in health, disability, youth, women’s and equality sectors). I work alongside them to achieve sustainability and organisational success.
Whether you want to develop your fundraising strategy, your case for support or need someone to help you with the nuts and bolts of applications, I can help. Since 2017, I have secured over £4M for my clients from the biggest funders in the UK. I am also experienced in developing revenue streams and programmes to generate earned income.
“We have been working with Emma Collins since 2020 and it has completely changed our fundraising. Emma has a huge knowledge of the scope and breadth of funding available, and what would suit each project. She is very easy to work with and her applications are always of a high quality. We have been really successful in our funding all thanks to Emma’s input. Highly recommend working with her!” – Jennifer Paterson, All or Nothing Aerial Dance Theatre
I also offer a popular fundraising masterclass, as well as mentoring for fundraisers.
I’ve run a charity, been part of several Boards of Directors and worked alongside a range of wonderful clients in and out of the arts to help them work out their vision, mission, objectives and how to deliver them. Whether you need some advice on how to budget for a specific programme, support in planning the most effective way to deliver a service or a full business plan, get in touch.
I also offer bespoke workshops and facilitation to reach consensus, develop strategy, or clarify your goals. From supporting small groups through listening circles, action learning sets, business planning tools and fun, creative bespoke workshops, to large sessions using tools like world café, I bring diverse groups together to learn from each other, effectively plan together and become more than the sum of their parts.
I love working with teams, leaders and practitioners to help them work well together and alone. I offer facilitation of away days, group and team coaching and individual coaching and mentoring. See more on my coaching pageCoachingPhoto: Max Crawford
