The Cranfield Trust
Providing free consultancy projects to charities addressing issues of poverty, disability and social exclusion, The Cranfield Trust is an independent charity with a strong link to Cranfield University. The Trust was founded at Cranfield by staff, students and alumni, and now works with a national register of 650 volunteers, many of whom are Cranfield alumni.
We work with small – medium sized charities which otherwise would not be able to afford external support, and help them with problems in a wide range of management areas, typically:
- Business or strategic planning
- Marketing advice or marketing planning
- Human resources issues
- Financial management or planning
- IT reviews and strategies
Projects can be anything from a half day to 15 days, with the longer projects spread over a few months. We also run an internet-based advice service specifically for shorter Human Resources problems and questions, HRNet. This service is also free.
2008-2009 is the Trust’s 20th anniversary year, and we will be celebrating with a series of events starting in autumn 2008. For more information on the work of The Cranfield Trust, please visit our website or contact us:
