Consultancy with soul
We care. Genuinely. We’ve chosen to work with charitable and public sector organisations, because we want our work to help you improve people’s lives. This is the essence of Brightpurpose. A consultancy with purpose. A consultancy with soul.
We understand how vital and serious our work is. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be an enjoyable process too. We operate with enthusiasm, sensitivity and warmth. You can trust us to give you solutions that work because we truly want to see you succeed – and we have the capability to help you make that happen.
Meet our team
What can I say…it has been so amazing to work with you. You have been so kind, patient and thorough. Your expertise and knowledge will help us create a real legacy. Everything and I mean everything we do is underpinned by the three differences now.
Brightpurpose have provided insightful, thoughtful and creative support to BBC Children in Need and our funded partners whenever we have worked together. Helen and the team are able to balance intellectual rigour with an understanding of where organisations and individuals are at and what they need in that moment in order to learn. Above all, they bring genuine curiosity and a passion for learning to any project they work on - enriching the work as a result.
Flexible and adaptable, Brightpurpose have worked alongside us and supported our learning; in doing so they challenge and ‘stretch’ us to think deeper and go further in our work. In addition, they are really helpful at pointing us in the direction of other learning that helps us even more as well bringing things to us that they think we will benefit from.
Brightpurpose remained a calm and steady presence throughout the evaluation, with clear communication which was sensitive and considered. They were tenacious at every stage of the evaluation and were not afraid to challenge us but did this with skill and attention. We found this approach refreshing and helpful, allowing us to fully reflect and consider our actions and approach. Their attention to detail was excellent and they produced high quality reports which were well written, balanced and fair.
Thank you *so* much for all your support, patience, wisdom and good humour throughout this period. I’m sure that we would not have as good a ‘product’ as we do now were it not for you and I’m even more convinced of the value of developmental evaluators!
BBC Children in Need have worked with Helen and the Brightpurpose team on a number of research, evaluation and organisational change projects since 2014. When the pandemic was at its peak, we asked them to help us analyse and interpret of the vast amount of additional information we collected from our grantees about the challenges they were witnessing and experiencing. This was testament to Brightpurpose’s knowledge of us, their flexibility, and research and analytical skills. It then made sense to work with Brightpurpose later in the pandemic to capture a full account of BBC Children in Need’s response and experiences of supporting organisations that work with children and young people affected across the UK. The final outputs, and the sharing of these insights through presentations and conversations, have been instrumental to our ongoing reflections and planning about how we respond to future crises.
