“Richard Newton Consulting helped us immensely in raising funding for the Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival 2016. Despite it being late in the day the team rallied around and sourced from some really useful pots. We simply don’t have the personnel to do the research of the funds available and their help in formulating strong submissions to the funding bodies proved invaluable. Amazing service and very reasonable pricing structure. We thoroughly recommend and look forward to working closely with RNC for 2017 and beyond.”
“Codi’r To has benefited so much from enlisting Richard’s expertise in fundraising. He has become a valuable member of our team, working with us to provide positive outcomes at a vital time for our organisation. His knowledge and understanding of fundraising for a small charity like ours is excellent. His team are always professional, accessible and supportive with work always delivered on time and always of the highest standard.”
“Teaming up with Richard Newton was one of the best decisions our organisation has made. His knowledge and experience of arts funding has been invaluable to Cory Band, and his success rate with applications is truly impressive.”
“Richard Newton Associates has provided Swansea City Opera with fundraising and marketing support over the last 5 years. It is hard to put in words how valuable their work has been for the company. Not only have we had a staggering success rate with our funding applications which has allowed the company to develop its outreach work and expand its repertoire into lesser performed operas, but also with their help and advice, the company profile has lifted and is now one of the most respected and popular mid scale touring opera companies in the UK.”
“Touch Trust have worked with Richard Newton Consulting over the last 6 months and during a time of transition for the organisation. Richard worked with us to develop a clear outcomes framework for our organisation and supported us to develop a range of funding applications to enable us to carry out our vital work across Wales.”
“Before we started working with Richard Newton Consulting, we were very reliant on a single source of funding. This meant that we were always susceptible to the constant threat of public sector cuts and funding changes. In the last 9 months they have set the foundations for a much broader financial base and enabled us to plan for future development of our organisation. We now have funding from a number of different sources including the Lottery, the Arts Council of Wales and the Co-op and we are looking forward to the time when we have an even wider funding foundation and a cohesive strategy for our future sustainability.”
“Applying for funding in this tough, economic climate is a huge challenge for a small charity like BulliesOut. With limited skills and resources in this area, we engaged Richard’s services to help and guide us. Richard’s expertise has been valuable and has succeeded in some successful funding applications for BulliesOut. Richard and his team take the time to understand their clients ensuring a successful outcome.”
“Richard Newton was highly recommended to us by another one of his clients. We have gained a very close relationship with Richard and his fantastic talented team within a short period of time. Richard is very approachable and full of ideas and enthusiasm. We were facing financial challenges and Richard has allowed our organisation to grow so that we can offer new opportunities to our pupils.”
“We have been working with Richard for 4 years and he has helped us secure over £2,000,000 in funding from charitable trusts and competitive tendering.
In addition Richard has always been on hand for ad hoc advice and his knowledge on the management of third sector and statutory organisations has proved invaluable to us as a charity.”
“Talking Hands Deaf Children and Young People Service have worked with Richard Newton Consulting Ltd for a number of years looking at different ways to enable us to provide a service for Deaf Children and families.
Richard and his team have provided excellent work, helping us to develop our small voluntary group to becoming a charity, looking at and reviewing all of the legal and governance aspects enabling us to grow and develop services Wales-wide.
They have provided high quality work supporting us to develop, have approached potential funders and looked at possible opportunities to work on projects with Deaf children and families. We look forward to continuing this relationship working together with Richard and his team to further expand our charity and to grow our services across Wales.
Richard also delivered training to our Board of Trustees, answered all questions we had and reassured our concerns with regards to the aspects of liability and responsibilities as a Trustee of a charitable organisation. He was able to listen, take on board our concerns, and guide us in the best way to further develop as he has a good understanding of the issues surrounding Deaf Children and families.
We would recommend Richard and his team to work with other voluntary groups of a similar nature, for the excellent service and advice that they have provided.”
“Richard Newton Consulting has been instrumental in adding capacity to our business development function in bidding for DWP, local authority and Welsh Government tenders. As a SME it is often a challenge when four or five tenders are out at the same time. The internal expertise at Richard Newton Consulting allows us to respond to all opportunities, whereby supporting our ongoing sustainability and expansion as a business.”
“Working with Richard and Sarah was an absolute godsend.
For a small organisation to manage recruitment at a very busy time would have been difficult, and it was vital for us to attract the best candidates possible. The team at RNConsultancy did this with ease, humour and complete professionalism. An absolute joy! Wish I could recruit more people just to work with them!”
