We understand how important it is to our clients to be able to budget their expenditure with certainty and confidence. Therefore, we are open about our fees and created this Pricing Policy to allow you to have that certainty and confidence. Naturally, the price for your assignment will vary according to the scale and complexity of your organisation as well as the nature and scope of the work that you want us to do.
Whenever we are able to, we provide subsidised rates to smaller organisations (typically with five staff or less).
Our initial consultation aims to find out about you and your work and clarify exactly how we can provide your solutions. This consultation is free and includes up to 30 minutes of one-to-one discussion with one of our consultants and a written summary of the support we can give you to help you realise your goals and the agreed cost. We typically carry out these consultations over the telephone or Skype but we are happy to meet up with you if you are in Exeter or are within a thirty-mile radius (beyond this we may ask you to contribute to the cost of travel).
With low overheads and no VAT to pay, you will find that our rates are extremely competitive and offer excellent value for money. Our standard daily rate ranges from £250 to £750 depending on your turnover and the complexity of the assignment. Longer assignments will attract a discount.
We recognise that not everyone wants to work in the same way, so we offer a number of ways to engage our services.
Pay As You Go
As the name suggests, you simply pay for the services you use, whenever you want to use them.
You pay a fixed fee each month and, like a monthly mobile contract, a number of hours of support are included depending on the fee paid, agreed in advance based on our joint understanding of your ongoing requirement for support allowing you to budget your expenditure throughout the financial year. If, one month, you need more support, you simply pay to “top-up” your contract and, if you use less, your unused hours will accumulate in your account so that you can use them for longer or more complex assignments.
Grouped / connected work
You might have received a grant or other fixed amount of funding with which to achieve a specific outcome or set of outcomes. Talk to us about your situation in confidence and we will work with you to structure the most appropriate package of services to help you achieve those outcomes within your budget.
Depending on your location, travel costs may be higher and we may need to charge you a contribution towards these costs. We would agree this contribution with you in advance.
As a not-for-profit organisation, set-up especially to support local groups, we work hard to provide effective solutions for the best value we can.
