What Our Customer Says

  • “We worked closely with FSD who have been an invaluable source of support and information and have been positive and realistic as well as objective. The study visits were also really good in helping us to consider challenges and ask ourselves some difficult questions.”

    Julia BracknallChief Executive, The Junction
  • “The work that FSD did for the Ardler Village Trust has proved very useful in assessing the feasibility of a potential new business. I found that their style and personal approach really helped us to understand the issues that we were trying to address. I would recommend working with the FSD for any organisation setting out in enterprise.”

    Alistair MacleodManager, Ardler Village Trust
  • “The expertise, experience and enthusiasm of all [FSD] training facilitators was hugely apparent and subsequently led to a very interactive experience amongst the course participants. The group managed to extract lots of experience and examples from across the third sector and build a portfolio of knowledge on all stages of the tendering process. Admittedly, tendering has the opportunity to become a ‘dry’ subject. This was simply not the case during the Forth Sector sessions, the team kept it light yet informative and fun yet practical.”
