LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Leadership


Your organisation is probably both remarkable and complicated.  Beautiful and challenging. To change the world is courageous but often messy work.  

As a leader it’s a challenge to remain optimistic and passionate.  It seems you need an ever-growing range of skills to get the job done. This is where we can help.

We get the complexity of leadership, whether it’s for a charity, community group or not for profit organisation.  We get our sector and we get you.  

You are people-powered and values-driven – and so are we.

Skills training, leadership coaching, governance/board training, facilitation, strategic planning, and fundraising support are just a few of the ways we can work with you to lead and create change.

You can be sure our work together will be relevant to your organisation, practical, and rooted in our team’s extensive expertise and knowledge of the not for profit sector.

Whatever we do together, it'll be transformative -
giving you the ongoing skills, knowledge & confidence to lead & create change.

The Leadership Programme provided me with the opportunity to step back from the everyday hurly-burly and reflect on the organisational culture and values which support and strengthen the work we do. It was wonderful to be a part of a supportive group of like-minded people so sensitively guided by Hilary and Sandy.

We left the Governance course with a sound idea of the principles of good governance and how it can make a difference to an organisation’s effectiveness…. We have been able to plan and implement our own infrastructure using the different elements, and are more focused on the vision and strategic purpose of our organisation.
