What We Do

What We Do

We provide expert advice, support and mentoring for capital and service development projects across the UK, as well as undertaking policy research, evaluation and impact studies. Together with our work as National Lottery Heritage Fund contracted consultants, this gives us a 360 degree view of projects from the early stages through to delivery and completion.

Our services for the cultural and heritage sector include:

  • We can act as an expert mentor between you and your professional project team. For example, where a major development project is at the concept stage or where a project may have gone awry and requires review and realignment. For small organisations, we can offer support to the Board, similar to a project director. For larger organisations, we can be a guiding hand, coordinating the work of the internal client team towards a clear set of development milestones, where a single independent ‘mastermind’ is missing.

    ‘In August 2019 the Chamberlain Highbury Trust appointed Cultural Consulting Network as Project Development Consultants. The Trust had failed three times to secure a major grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and decided to appoint consultants to review our project and to lead the submission of a revised bid to the new NLHF.

    We were amazed at the way Katie gathered all the various strands of our project and helped us to prioritise our objectives. She formed excellent personal relationships with all our trustees…and went beyond the agreed outline … extending the timescale of her contract to steer us through the pandemic, using the time to reflect on its impact and further adapt our project to address a changing social and economic climate.

    The outcome of CCN’s work was the award of a major grant from the NLHF in September 2021. What could be a better recommendation? Her colleague in CCN, Sophia has similarly impressed.’
    Les Sparks OBE, Chair of Chamberlain Highbury Trust
