“As CEO at Nightsafe , I have had the pleasure of working with Sally on a number of different projects over the last 12 months. From Organisational Reviews and the creation of new Job Descriptions and Role Profiles to Bid writing advice.
Sally brings a fresh approach and a clarity of thinking to any discussion and is able to provide professional critical analysis when required .
Having a wide breadth of knowledge on the Third Sector and both a keen understanding of the financial landscape and potential opportunities , Sally is very much an enabler with a friendly positive ethos, fun to work with and creative in her approach”.

“I believe it’s essential to shine a light on your organisation and look at how you can improve things for your team and for your beneficiaries. We called in Sally Bloomer so that the whole process would be managed independently, transparently and of course free up resource within our charity. From day one Sally was approachable, responsive and helped us to achieve more, simply by acting on intelligence she gathered from our team, key stakeholders and members of the public. Sally is like a breath of fresh air, totally professional but good fun to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you work with her to help you take your organisation from good to great”.

“I subcontracted some work in the North-West to Sally. This was a strategy to upscale and commercialise a product for a locally based voluntary organisation in Merseyside. Sally undertook the project efficiently and competently and the client was very impressed, so I would certainly work with Sally again”.
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Sally to the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation as a fundraising consultant. She has been a pleasure to work with, being very supportive and focused on our needs. She met with each director and key staff member individually, asked us challenging questions, and quickly developed a good understanding of how LESS works and our future plans. Her recommendations were appropriate and well-presented, including summaries and timelines to help with our planning and prioritisation. She completed each stage of the work ahead of our agreed deadlines, and invited and incorporated our feedback. In addition to fundraising advice, she gave us useful suggestions about changing the way we work, drawing upon her knowledge of what has worked well for other third sector organisations
“I have been very impressed by Sally’s professionalism and work ethic. She produced a very proficient piece of research that met the client’s brief perfectly and the final report was well received. I have no hesitation in recommending her”.

Sally is a solution-finder. Nothing stands in her way! She has a winning balance of being results-driven and naturally personable, taking an interest in who she works with. Quick to grasp new projects, she swiftly assesses what needs to happen to enable progress. Then gets on with it and delivers. She has an ability to highlight aspects of a business plan that may not be obvious to its creator, but which can be developed or expanded for profitable gain, or better business practice. Highly self-motivated, I found her to be reliable and focused, business-minded yet bringing creativity to her approach. Sally is also very charismatic and ‘sparkly’ yet grounded and down-to-earth, making her a great motivator of people.
