By working together with Whitney Consulting, our organisation felt we had the best possible chance of securing funding. I would highly recommend Tara & her team, and we will look forward to working with Whitney Consulting again in the future.

Tara & the team were fantastic to work with. They made the daunting process of applying for a grant so much easier and the job they perform is extremely thorough.
