Advice and support for religious organisations

You + Us = More. More support. More advice. More understanding.

Faith-based charities (whether Catholic, Church of England, Dioceses, a faith-based school, or other faith-based charity) come to us for guidance on handling risk, managing cashflow and investments, and staying on top of their accounting needs. We can advise religious dioceses on how best to manage ‘Parish Share’ donations, understand the implications of charity status (charitable trust or CIO), support with safeguarding data and deal with property-related issues and investments.

Whoever you are, come and tell us about your situation – and how it could be better. Our service flexes to help with everything from the practical to the personal. Because you put your hearts into what you do, we put ours into helping you do it.

We’re Friends of the Association of Provincial Bursars, regularly speaking at their Open Forum events, and work with the Conference of Religious England and Wales. We also run regular free events for charities and frequently update our news and insights page with relevant content.
