FCG has a longstanding track record of projects to strengthen civil society and build democracy in Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America. We work collaboratively with a wide range of organisations and stakeholders to strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations (CSOs) to influence political decision-making processes and demand accountability from government. 

We have particular expertise in working with hard-to-reach and marginalised groups. We have also conducted large and small-scale evaluation of CSO activities.

Our Civil Society services include:

  • Helping CSOs become more visible and improving their access to information
  • Providing networking opportunities so that CSOs can maximise their voice
  • Strengthening partners’ institutional and financial capacity
  • Organising workshops, seminars and training on developing project proposals, accessing grants and mobilising sustainable funding sources
  • Creating enabling legal and institutional frameworks for CSOs and strengthening their involvement in democratic processes
  • Enabling efficient, transparent and sustainable funding for CSOs
  • Evaluations of CSOs for financiers
