Our goal is to provide a quality service for the organisations we support. We aim to work with, listen and learn from our customers.

Customer Stories

"It was good to get some clear guidance from the panel. I write funding applications every week and you get knocked back a lot that is just the nature of it. It's not that often you get some really clear feedback about what to do next and how you can improve it, so that was really useful."

Customer Stories



Our customer service goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to quality in everything we do.  We are accredited to the international quality standard ISO 9001-2015 and you can see our current Quality Policy below.

Customer Panel

Whether it's listening to what our customers need or treating colleagues with respect, people are at the heart of everything we do. For this reason, we've set up a Customer Panel to help us get feedback on what we do and how we do it.

In 2017 we recruited the first members of our Customer Panel after an open recruitment process: the panel is made up of ten people.

We share ongoing learnings from our customer feedback from surveys and feedback from the panel in our newsletter and our blog, so watch this space.
