Good Help.

Helping small organisations do big things

Services

Good Help offers tailored support to small, busy organisations. We grew out of a desire to use our skills for good, and we believe that real change happens on the ground. We know that sometimes generating this change means there’s no time left for those other important (but often back office) jobs. That's where we come in!

Strategy

We help you build your strategic direction so that your organisation, funders and partners know where you’re headed.

Policy

We develop policies and procedures that work for your organisation. These keep things running smoothly.

Tender

We write compelling tender applications to ensure you have the funding you need to deliver your services.

We're also happy to work with you on one-off projects focused on collaboration, measuring impact or describing the value of the work you do.

Approach

Good Help will partner with your organisation to help you reach your goals. We believe that work should be fun, creative and focused on outcomes. We aim to leave you with a product that excites you, is useful and sets you up well in the long-term.

Myrtle

house, office, transport

We'd be lying if we said we knew Myrtle's full history - she's a van of many secrets. What we do know is that she started out as a rental, and served a few other families before she joined ours. We've made some slight changes (we've added solar power, internet and a heater) so she works well as our mobile office as well as our home!

Contact

We would love to connect, hear about the work you do and chat about how we might be able to help. We work right across the country and we’re happy to come to you.
