The first choice for
strategy and fundraising
CLDF is a national charity and the only organisation in the UK dedicated to fighting liver disease in children. Its work lies in three integral areas: innovative medical research, health education for healthcare professionals and the public and support programmes for families and young people affected by liver disease.
We worked with this inspiring charity for ten years from 2004 to 2014, which began when we were asked to provide trust and grants research, to develop the case for support and to help with the recruitment of a new fundraiser. We also provided mentoring and ongoing support to the fundraising team.
As well as supporting the trusts programme, over the years we have advised on successful DoH Section 64 bids and, more recently, helped develop a legacy campaign and reviewed the potential for corporate support. We have also advised on contact mapping, major donor research and the development of community fundraising.
Former Chief Executive Catherine Arkley says: "Wootton George Consulting played an important role in the development of our fundraising programme. I am delighted with the quality of their work, reflected in our on-going relationship with them".
This was a very wide ranging account, with five of our consultants offering their expertise in different fields and at different stages. As a result, we were able to offer a "one stop shop" for a wide range of fundraising needs.
Our long support for CLDF serves as a good example of how we were able to develop a long-lasting relationship with a charity, responding to their changing needs over many years and drawing on the wide range of skills and experience of our team.
In 2014, CLDF appointed its first Head of Fundraising, in order to build on the foundations we had helped the charity to lay down. While we are not currently delivering fundraising support there now, we remain in touch with CLDF and may well be of further help in the future. We wish the new CLDF team every success and look forward to serving them again one day.
