  • Project Officer
    ‘Thank you so much for all your advice that you deliver in such a direct , no nonsense way. It suits us, and the way we talk to each other fine…even the odd  use of an anglo-saxon verb fits well with our working style.'
    Project Officer
    National Museum
  • CEO
    ‘Across all areas they always delivered on time and within agreed budget. We see Heritage Insider as a valued partner and look forward to working with them in the future.’
    Disability Charity
  • Manager
    ‘I undertook a project management qualification a few weeks ago and one of the aspects was about the evaluation of a project and how crucial it is to have that starting point clearly stated to compare against. You’ve managed to tease all those relevant points out of what is a lot of waffle in the bid and then understood how we’ve addressed them. Anyone would think you do this as a living 😉’
    Place-based Project
  • Manager
    ‘Designed and tailored to your individual or project needs – Kate and the team are fantastic and have brought life, clarity and a positive twist to every project they have supported me with.’
    National Conservation Charity
  • Mentee
    ‘It’s a real privilege to work alongside Heritage Insider – to have their experience, insight and honest approach a part of the process. I couldn’t recommend them enough.’
Step 1

What’s the big thing you want to achieve? Where can your organisation, programme or project really make a difference? Who needs to be involved?

We partner with organisations to explore your ambitions, and map the journey to getting to them. 

From Theory of Change to visions, forging partnerships, first steps in developing new projects and legacy planning. We bring people onto the same page to collaborate; making individual lives, our communities, heritage, nature and environment better, and more equitable.

If you have an existing Strategy, programme, project or governance body, we can ‘health check’ it to ensure its functioning well, fully aligned with your mission - helping you get a step closer to your vision. This will give you an independent assessment, clear recommendations and a positive way forward.

Step 2

What will it take to realise your organisation’s ambitions, and to reach the right people?

We work with organisations to create evidenced, effective plans that are not just ‘pie-in-the-sky’ to impress funders, but are authentic, practical roadmaps for achieving sustainable change. 

We can help you gain the support you need to make your plans a reality through fostering advocates and helping you to create award-winning grant bids. We specialise in the National Lottery grant portfolio.

Step 3

You know in your heart what difference you make, but can you show it?

Perhaps you’re not sure where to start, or maybe your current evaluation plan isn’t quite cutting the mustard. We can be an Evaluation Partner to your organisation – quickly helping you to reflect on what to evaluate, when and how to generate robust evidence of your impact.

We have helped hundreds of projects and programmes to ensure they have a practical plan in place for generating useable insight that will not just satisfy funders, but really help inform the way your team and partners work.

Step 4

Have you got the right skills on board to deliver the innovation you want to see?

Your organisations needs to be resilient, with sustainable workstreams and enough capacity to deliver them. Investing in yourself and your team is an important building block of resilience.

We work with your people to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding so that they feel confident and prepared to tackle innovative programmes, and to weather change. We curate inclusive opportunities to share experiences, reflect on current practice and grow as professionals which leave people with tangible actions and fired-up ready for action.
