Framework is a collective of independent consultants, formed in 1985 and now one of the longest established specialist consultancy organisations in the UK working exclusively with international and UK non-profit organisations. Our approach to consultancy is underpinned by a commitment to professionalism, client empowerment, social justice and equity. Framework’s vision is of a healthy and effective non-profit sector playing a vital role in leading positive social and environmental change across the world. We aim to help create healthier and more effective organisations that contribute to a strong and vibrant civil society.

Our values of creativity, integrity and connection are at the heart of our work with clients, with each other and with the wider world. Creativity for us means creating value using innovative approaches. Integrity means being true to ourselves and maintaining high standards. Connection means finding, creating and sharing links and patterns between people, organisations and ideas.
