With our extensive charity finance and charity governance expertise, we have almost 1,000 charity clients, and act for one in four of the top 250 charities as either an internal or external auditor.

We know running a charity is complicated, so when you choose us you can count on our extensive experience of charity finance, charity governance and management knowledge. That leaves you free to concentrate on what is most important to you and your funders.

Our national charity team is comprised of more than 30 partners and 150 staff – everyone from charity accountants to experts in wider charity finance  – making it larger than many other specialist firms or the charity teams in more generalist firms.

We publish regular surveys  on charity finance and management and governance best practice, which provide a barometer of the financial state of the charity sector.

We are proud to sponsor the Charity Finance Group – a charity that inspires a financially confident, dynamic and trustworthy charity sector – and are a regular contributor to the group’s articles and conferences.

The volume of environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting has increased significantly in the private sector over the past few years, and the same expectation is now extending to charities. Charities are built on the principle of providing a public benefit – should this extend as far as ESG reporting?
