Nick Perks

I am a freelance consultant, offering support to charities, social change organisations, foundations and philanthropists anywhere in the UK. I am particularly interested in helping organisations to explore questions of mission and strategy. I am also an experienced grant assessor, and a skilled facilitator of groups and meetings.


I was formerly Trust Secretary (CEO) at the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust where I managed the organisation and a grant programme addressing issues of power and accountability in the fields of democracy, corporate accountability and media. I am a voluntary trustee of the Joffe Charitable Trust. I am an active Quaker and live in York.
