About The Clare Foundation

The Clare Foundation is an infrastructure support charity that helps charities in a variety of ways (in general this is free of charge). We help CEOs, charity leaders, trustees and senior staff. We also help lead volunteers of small to medium charities. The Clare Foundation provides bespoke support, CEO to CEO/SMT/chair, through our CEO and our CHAT Team. We provide access to the people with the skills, tools and information you need to deal with the issue at hand.
