This is a term widely used in the not-for-profit sector and allows the client management and staff to gain knowledge of best practice and techniques in successfully running the charitable organisation.
It involves transferring the skills of a consultant(s) to the Board of Trustees, managers and staff in areas such as good governance, quality of services, growth and financial stability.
In many cases there are opportunities to develop a social enterprise for services which would be an important income stream for the charity to supplement grants and donations.
