Amnesty International UK: Institutional, Trust and Foundation Research

The research was commissioned by AI UK’s Major Donor team, to feed into the fundraising strategy supporting their new 8 year organisational strategy.  Working with Flamingo’s Associate, Dermott McDonald, we interviewed human rights donors, peer organisations to AI UK, and internal stakeholders.  We also carried out a donor mapping work.  Our findings were shared in a recommendations report, and we facilitated three reflection workshops with AI UK staff. August 2022 – January 2023.

ActionAid UK: Flexible Funding Learning Review 

Having worked with ActionAid to design and deliver two rounds of their 12-month Women’s Rights Fellowship for Women’s Rights Organisations in 2019 and 2020, I was excited to work with my co-researcher,  Aasha Ramesh, on this learning of ActionAid’s Flexible Funding funding model. Using feminist research approaches, we undertook a number of interviews with a broad range of Women’s Rights Organisations and ActionAid staff, and combined this with a desk review of Flexible Funding Models to produce a final report and run a final reflection session. August – September 2021.


Eurasian Harm Reduction Association: Online training course 

This project was to design and deliver a bespoke online training course: “Resilience and Sustainability for CSOs”, for the Eurasian Harm Reduction Association.  The audience were small CSOs working with key populations (e.g. LGBTQI+, HIV+, Sex Workers) in the CEECA region. Together with a team of 3 other trainers and funding specialists I led the planning and design of the training programme based on feedback from the participants.  We ran live training sessions, recorded a series of specialist webinars, and delivered 1-to-1 coaching, in English and Russian, to support participants in strategies for sustainability. Sept-Dec 2020


WWF – EU proposal development support 

During 2021 and 2022 I worked on two major EU grant applications with WWF Philippines and WWF Malaysia. This included advising on the concept note, full proposal, theory of change, logical framework and budget.  Both proposals were successful, bringing in a total of Eur3.25m.  I loved quickly getting familiarised with topics as diverse as sustainable tuna fishing and indigenous community management of Royal Belum State Park. In 2023 I have worked on a further concept led by WWF in Sweden and Russia, focussed on the Arctic.  


Mercy Corps: Researching Commercial Contracting with European Donors  

Gathering information through desk research and key informant interviews with donors and peer organisations, myself and my consultancy colleague were able to provide Mercy Corps Europe with an in depth analysis of commercial contracting opportunities with bilateral donors across Europe - and the EU itself.  Based on this information we were able to identify for MCE where the opportunities might be, and make recommendations for next steps.   This assignment took place during 2023.
