One of John's most popular services is reviewing and building an NGO's financial capacity. This can include:

  • assessing financial management, accounting and budgetary systems
  • identifying strengths and weaknesses
  • building on the strengths
  • finding ways of addressing weaknesses, leading to:
  • recommendations for improvements
  • (if required) training and follow-up visits

Carried out in a supportive and challenging way, each review is designed specifically and brings John's wide experience from other NGOs. Involved in the process throughout, the organisation can take full ownership of the findings.

The service is appropriate when an NGO wants to:

  • develop financial skills, before expanding or receiving more funding
  • identify how to develop its financial systems and sustainability
  • strengthen the financial management of partner organisations
