At Empower we look for creative responses to problems and share this creativity with our clients. Our reputation is our most valuable asset and we focus on maintaining and improving that reputation.
Over the years we have provided quality support and training to charities, Local Authorities and organisations such as Communities First to help them strive to be the best that they can be.
We are constantly looking for new partnerships which will provide win:win outcomes for both so if you think there may be an opportunity for joint working give us a call. We would love to hear from you.
Our conferences provide a unique opportunity to bring the private, statutory and voluntary sectors together to achieve shared goals.

This is what people say about Empower:
“A well planned and implemented course. The trainer had an element of humour and attention to timing; plenty of information beyond the slides.”
Writing winning bids and developing an effective fundraising strategy
“Excellent responsive service that is highly professional. Officers from other organisations have commented to me about how good Bev Garside is and how quick she is to grasp complicated project details, nuances and funding streams.”
West Lindsey District Council Economic Development Department
“Empower has helped Derwentside Community Empowerment Network through a period of conflict and helped us over a huge number of challenges yet has remained focussed and professional and helped us to be the same thereby still achieving our goals.”
Derwentside Community Network
“I have no hesitation in recommending Empower as eminently suitable contractors in roles requiring a dedicated, committed and tenacious character for a key role in developing, progressing or closing specific project, or indeed a generic piece of work that may be required.”
London Action Trust
“I will continue to promote Empower as I feel they are able to respond efficiently and effectively to given projects.”
London Borough of Hounslow Adult Education
“The best training I have ever been on.”
Participant on Increase Your personal Effectiveness

Our other services also achieve high praise from both statutory and voluntary sector organisations.
In the Third Sector, efficiency, focus and accountability are always important. Organisations need to demonstrate the value they deliver to stakeholders, partners, and beneficiaries. And they often need to be wiser with their finances than private or public sector organisations. So making sure staff are working on the right things, and supporting organisational goals is vitally important. But how do you do this in practical terms?Published by Sean Conrad - Certified Human Capital Strategist of Halogen Software on 17/05/2013 View this entry
Writing can be an immensely pleasurable and rewarding experience but, as with any such hobby, start to make it something that others rely upon and it swiftly loses its lustre. Take Julie for example … (please someone take her) … she loves quilting and has often thought how brilliant it would be if she could sell her quilts for enough money for it to be her source of income. Then someone asked her to make a quilt; not for money but for a favour, this hobby rapidly became a bit onerous. Every stitch now had to be perfect; every fabric choice became agonisingly difficult; suddenly she felt she was to be judged on what had previously been done solely for her enjoyment - and there wasn’t even any cash involved!Published by Natasha James and Julie Smith of Breaking Barriers Community Arts on 14/05/2013 View this entry
