People say the nicest things...

"We have commissioned Beware of the Bull for over 6 years. Their professional, pragmatic advice – and expertise in grant funding, tenders, strategic planning, evaluation and more - have enabled a small highly specialised sexual violence service for males to grow from £20k a year turnover to now approaching £200k. That is no mean achievement in a highly complex cultural and funding landscape. Without Beware of the Bull I do not believe we would have developed so well or in fact survived. I have no hesitation in recommending them."
“Beware of the Bull’s support and experience with our fundraising has been amazing - just what we needed as a new charity. They helped us prioritise our funding applications, hone down our ‘case for support’ and introduced us to new funding options to explore.”
