Flamingo’s main clients are non-governmental/voluntary organisations but we also work with networks and other bodies. Rachel regularly works with Bond, the UK network for international development, and also sits on the Funding Working Group Steering Group.


Rachel has a wealth of experience in institutional fundraising and grant management and uses her knowledge of the commissioning environment to develop compelling proposals. Her understanding of the unique nuances of each donor is key to ensuring strong donor relationships are developed.
