We’re really proud of our record.

Below is a selection of testimonials from just a few of our many happy clients. You’ll find more testimonials dotted throughout this site too.


‘Heritage Insider have provided us with a range of support. When helping us with operational issues, working directly with our staff and volunteers, they proved themselves to be highly skilled facilitators enabling people on the ground to develop and implement the right solutions that work.  They have also worked on our Board level planning processes when they came up with a range of helpful innovative suggestions. Across all areas they always delivered on time and within agreed budget. We see Heritage Insider as a valued partner and look forward to working with them in the future.’

‘Heritage Insider have brought us clarity, an objective eye and appropriate challenges.  They are able to take woolly ideas, get tothe nub of how to articulate them clearly and pull that thread through the entire process.’

National Museum of the Royal Navy


Kate facilitated a large number of activity planning meetings and workshops at RHS Wisley during our HLF Development Year and she was the driving force that galvanised everyone, skillfully bringing teams together and ensuring that all voices were heard.  Her incredibly organised and enthusiastic approach was highly motivational for all those who attended and it ultimately amounted to an inspirational activity plan underpinned by strong engagement with all stakeholders.

Thank you so much for all your advice that you deliver in such a direct , no nonsense way. It suits us, and the way we talk to each other fine…even the odd  use of an anglo- saxon verb fits well with our working style.’

National Coal Mining Museum


‘In the time that we have been working with Heritage Insider I have found their input hugely valuable.  Kate and the team bring fresh ideas and techniques around evaluation that we could not have found the capacity to develop on our own. Heritage Insider is the independent critical friend who will have frank conversations with you, challenge you on the direction and pace of your project when appropriate and help to keep your focus where it needs to be.’

Ignite Yorkshire


‘Heritage Insider offer an excellent service to support HLF applications.  Their detailed knowledge and experience of the processes and requirements involved were extremely valuable in preparing the bid. They prepared a thoroughly professional, detailed and comprehensive Activity Plan to a high standard.’

Llanelli Goods Shed Project


‘Thanks so much for all the work you’ve done with us over the last couple of years. I will confess that I was sceptical beforehand that the money allocated in the budget for evaluation would represent good value, but you have completely changed my mind! You’ve done an amazing job of herding the our organisation’s cats and I’ve learnt a lot, and I know the team have found it really helpful. I’ll definitely be recommending Heritage Insider again. I’m sure we’ll be in contact over evaluation of the project in the longer term.’



‘Kate and her team produced an outstanding Activity Plan which secured Round 2 funding to deliver our Heritage Ability project. Kate’s enthusiasm, knowledge and experience provided us with just the right amount of support and challenge, which was always delivered with a smile. We couldn’t have done it without her!’
