We support governments and international organisations working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
As experts in resource mobilisation, policy analysis, political advocacy and campaigning, we inject innovative and creative solutions to advocacy challenges, use our network of political relationships, and over a decade of experience winning advocacy campaigns, to help international organisations become more effective.
Changing Government Policies
We understand how to influence legislation and policies in the British political system, lobbying MPs and officials and persuading them to adopt new policies, to support specific initiatives or to prioritise new issues.
From policy reports, to parliamentary briefings and speech writing; we have written for some of the biggest names in the business including former prime ministers and celebrity influencers.
We have an excellent network of political relationships across all major Westminster political parties and a network of contacts in DFID, FCO, Cabinet Office, Treasury and Number 10.
We have led successful cross sector campaigns which delivered investments exceeding £1bn from the UK Government for Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; the Global Fund to Fight Aids TB, and Malaria and for the World Banks’s International Development Association.
Policy and Research Skills
We can work across a range of policy issues and swiftly develop the expertise needed to influence persuasively. Policy expertise in development finance, anti-corruption initiatives and human rights.
Public Affairs and Advocacy
We provide advice, political analysis, political mapping, and direct political advocacy for governments and international organisations seeking to influence the UK Government.
We have organised some of the biggest and most impactful events on the UK development scene including the UK launch of the action/2015 campaign. We can help you to organise everything from small policy roundtable to large conferences. We will develop the concept for the event, target the speakers and participants, produce all the written materials and manage all logistical arrangements.
Interim Advocacy Management Services
We can provide interim services for organisations needing expert policy / advocacy support during interim periods.
Supporting Resource Mobilisation Campaigns
We will support governments, NGOs, international organisations and private sector organisations to develop strategies on how to influence the UK Government. We will provide advice on how to develop these strategies, facilitate introductions and political connections; write advocacy letters, speeches and briefings, and provide campaign advice and development.
Advocacy Training and Careers Advice
We run workshops for people who want to develop their skills in political advocacy and campaigning, coaching individuals and delivering bespoke training sessions for teams.
