1. Introduction

Wessex Partnerships is an independent consultancy company dedicated to economic development and social progress. Formed in 2000, our main business is accessing grant funding, bidding for education, skills training and employment contracts and raising funding for charitable projects. Our mission is to promote business growth, workforce development and successful communities.
Wessex Partnerships is based in Fareham, Hampshire and operates mainly in Central, Southern England.

2. Services

We provide four main service areas for private businesses, public bodies, education and training providers and charities. These are:
• Consultancy support for business development, bid writing, fundraising ideas and proposals
• Access to grant and loan finance for start ups, small businesses and social enterprises
• Developing and writing EU funding applications for business, skills and social projects
• Ongoing project support, including economic research, project management and final evaluation
A key aspect of our work is responding to tender opportunities and calls for funding. Wessex Partnerships has won over £60m on behalf of its clients and managed multi-million pound projects once the funding has been secured.

3. Strategic Sectors

We have a diverse client base to reflect our broad spectrum of knowledge and experience. Our work has spanned over 100 business, education, employment and skills projects in a range of industries, such as tourism and hospitality, care, marine, engineering, manufacturing and construction. Over 50% of Wessex Partnerships’ clients need expertise and support to tender successfully for public sector contracts and funding awards. Wessex Partnerships is also highly regarded for its work in social inclusion and community initiatives, charitable sector and social enterprise development.
Others that have benefited from our well-respected expertise include schools, colleges and universities, as well as medium to large charities. We also operate in several EU member states with our partner organisations on international business support and skills and learning projects.
