Could your organisation benefit from the Pilotlight effect?

Primary interest
Voluntary sector

Pilotlight is a national charity that supports small to medium charities and social enterprises to become bigger, better or more sustainable. Two years on, after working with us, our charity partners are on average reaching 53% more people and generating 28% more income. Could this be your organisation?

Through facilitated coaching from volunteer senior business mentors, supported by a paid project manager, we help organisations develop their business skills, strengthen their organisation and increase their impact. The programme is free of charge, and lasts for 10-12 months.

We are now looking for new partner organisations to work with in 2017-18. If the time is right for you to get an injection of objective support and expertise, please apply at To be eligible, organisations must have been providing a service for at least two years and have at least one employee in a leadership position.

Candidates from England are invited to apply until 31 July for projects starting from September 2017.
