Organisational Health Check

We all recognise how important it is to have regular health checks to monitor our fitness – illnesses caught early have a much better chance of being put right quickly.Well the same idea applies to the wellbeing of charities and other not-for-profit organisations.

Getting into the habit of regularly reviewing the health of your organisation will help you to spot problem areas quickly and help you to keep in touch with your progress – to get into (and stay in) peak shape, be more effective and successful.

Health Checks

Our health check reviews can take the form of:

Mini Health Check – 1 day review, half a day onsite and half a day report writing and feedback session.

Intermediate Health Check – 2 day, 1.5 days on site and half a day reporting writing and feedback session.

Full Deep Dive Health Check – 3 days, 2 days on site and a further day for research, report writing and feedback session.
