Nick Perks

I am a freelance consultant, offering support to charities, social change organisations, foundations and philanthropists anywhere in the UK. I am particularly interested in helping organisations to explore questions of mission and strategy. I am also an experienced grant assessor, and a skilled facilitator of groups and meetings.


I have worked in the voluntary sector for more than 20 years, including as (CEO) at the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and as co-ordinator of the Environmental Funders Network. I am currently a voluntary trustee of the Joffe Charitable Trust. I am an active Quaker and live in York.
