I have a good technical knowledge of corporate governance, company and charity law, gained from working as a specialist consultant to charities and social enterprises. Before setting up my consultancy, I worked for almost 5 years as a Governance Officer with NICVA (Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action). I also have 12 years’ prior experience working for the Charity Commission for England and Wales, so have a strong understanding of charity law.
At NICVA I advised charities and not for profit organisations of all types and sizes throughout Northern Ireland and the border counties of the ROI and provided training and one to one support to assist Boards and Committees to build robust governance arrangements.
I have built up considerable experience drafting and revising governing documents and assisting with the legal set up of charities and social enterprises, including assisting in the formation of many Community Interest Companies and charitable companies.
I assist with charity applications and have a 100% track record of successfully obtaining charitable recognition with the Charity Commission and HM Revenue and Customs for the charities I have worked with.
I currently work with charities on a private client basis, and also provide mentoring, consultancy and training to social enterprises.
