Our services are designed to address both short and long term capacity issues to help organizations perform at their best.  We aim to achieve this through two types of consultancy approaches:

  1. A short term, focused intervention designed to address a need you’re a facing or gap in one of the core operational capacity areas of the organization.
  2. A long term Capacity Development intervention based on a deep and mutually held understanding of the organizations we work with. Our support is tailored to strengthen skills, systems and practice in one or more of the core capability areas.

Why HCS?

We operate a mission driven not for profit business model which means we work to inspire civil society organizations to strengthen capability in operational areas so they become fit for funding and trusted for impact.

We deliver solutions to address your needs. We have developed practical tools, approaches, and frameworks, policies to address these. Our range of services reflects our deep understanding of the needs in the sector and of our clients.

We provide practical advice and support and have access to the best practices in the sector. We seek to identify the best practices in the sector and are able to reach out to clients and peer organizations in the sector to share practices/tools in an anonymous way.

All our consultants are senior professional ex-practitioners who have extensive experience working in the sector and have a deep understanding of how NGOs work and the challenges to drive change within them.
