Sally Taylor

I help organisations achieve greater impact with and for the people they serve. 

I offer a fully tailored service to help charities, businesses, social enterprises and communities achieve greater impact.


Specifically, I support organisations to develop or improve:

  • organisational strategy and theory of change (formation, refresh or development)

  • tenders and funding bid preparation

  • effectiveness - governance, operational planning & implementation

  • specific programme design and/or implementation

  • income/funding strategy 

  • impact measurement & learning strategy

  • communications: online strategy and offline relationship management support (for example, with funders, donors, supporters & partners).


My approach is to spend time with you, your people and your communities or customers, to understand what you're about and how you work. All this to discover, explore and collaboratively solve your most pressing challenges.

With over 15 years experience enabling and supporting social impact and business development, the questions that I’ve most often helped to answer for my clients are:

  • How can we have confidence that we are doing the right things, in the right way, with the resources we have?

  • How can we augment what resources we have with an income & funding strategy that supports sustainability for greater impact?

  • What do we need to do to put social impact at the heart of our decision-making?

  • How can we better involve our communities and stakeholders, to put us all in a better position to achieve more together?

  • How can we better use technology to achieve greater impact?


​Alongside your staff, users and your wider stakeholder community, we’ll review how you're functioning, what impacts you dream of, and how to put your organisation in a stronger position to achieve those ambitions.​


Already clear about a quick fix you need?

I'm a trouble-shooter who can dive in quickly and swoop out as necessary, but I'll always endeavour to leave you with the capability to sustain improvements.
