Organisations we have worked with
What our clients and partners say about us
"Principle have helped us develop new relationships across all levels of Government, and now continue to build on these foundations with the type of critical challenge and support that only the best policy strategists provide. Their commitment to immersing themselves in the mission and key stakeholder relationships of charity clients like ourselves means that they can maximise their impact.”
Chief of Staff, St John Ambulance
"“Principle Consulting made sure that our voice was heard when it mattered most. As an organisation whose people and services felt the worst ravages of the pandemic, we needed a consultancy we could trust to help us lobby behind the scenes and raise our voices in public – and Principle have done just that. Our consultant is an integral part of the MHA team, working with expertise and agility to identify strategic opportunities, and to roll up her sleeves and get the actions done. There’s no question that Principle provide great value for money and superb insight for our charity.”
Head of Corporate Affairs, MHA
"The work of Principle Consulting has been integral to the successful LJWG engagement with the Mayor of London. The strategic vision of their consulting team has provided the LJWG and the Routemap to elimination of hepatitis C in London with vital support to produce a collaborative workstream with the GLA across the city. Not only has the team demonstrated a high level of business skills but they are also a pleasure to work with as individuals."
Head of Policy, London Joint Working Group on Substance Use and Hepatitis C
"Achieving cut through during the pandemic has been challenging, but thanks to the expertise and support of Principle Consulting, the work we did to highlight the impact of COVID-19 on our community gave us the platform we needed to raise the profile of rare autoimmune conditions with key decision makers and the opportunity to help shape solutions. Key to this success has been Principle’s unique way of working, with their consultant operating as part of the team as opposed to being at arm’s length. Their ability to be adaptable, pragmatic and pro-active has added real value."
Co-Chair, Rare Autoimmune Rheumatic Disease Alliance (RAIRDA)
"Working with Principle has enabled us to completely change our public affairs and policy work at Jo's. Their unique approach means that instead of feeling like we are working with an agency, we have in fact gained a new member of our team who has enabled us to build our skills internally at the same time as increasing our engagement with policy makers and government across the UK."
Head of communications, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust
“The consultant from Principle who came in to help us was very knowledgeable about our work and the issues we focus on, immediately understood what we needed, and not only hit the ground running, but felt like a member of the team from the first day.”
Policy Director, The Children’s Society
“Principle Consulting’s work on our Publish What You Pay campaign has been of the highest standard of verve, integrity and tactical adroitness whilst always keeping their client fully informed and in the loop. It has led to a clear change in the government's position on the issue against much better funded opposition by clearly out-campaigning and out-influencing them.”
Campaigns Director, Global Witness
"As a result of receiving campaigning training from Principle, we now have much more confidence in our ability to campaign and deliver tangible results for the people we serve. The Principle consultant was very thorough, had an excellent grasp of the issues involved in campaigning, and could draw on a breadth of experience to illustrate the points being discussed. The training was tailored to our needs and we would recommend it to any organisation looking to expand their campaigning knowledge or capacity. It was perfect!"

“Our Principle Consultant has done a fantastic job in the past few months of supporting Missing People’s policy and campaigns work at a very busy time for the charity. Her knowledge of the missing issue and related issues, together with her great insights and thoughtful, flexible approach meant she was able to add significant value to our work, and got stuck straight in. She worked on a variety of projects during her time, from our Manifesto on Missing People, to our work on vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds. I would not hesitate to recommend Principle Consulting to another charity looking for advice and input on policy and campaigning work.”
Director of Policy, Research and Development, Missing People
"I had reservations about using consultants to handle our public affairs, but Principle are different. From the start they really understood what we needed and what we as an organisation are all about. We have been working with them for over 13 years now and I see them more as our first rate in-house public affairs and policy department rather than as outside consultants."
Chief Executive, The Hepatitis C Trust
“The Principle consultant assumed a major role in the campaign from day one and worked hard to make it a success. They were just what we needed and were a pleasure to work with.”
Policy and Research Director, Landmine Action
"Working with Principle has allowed us to have huge success in raising the profile of the less survivable cancers with Governments and cancer policy teams in England and Scotland. The secretariat support that Principle provides to the Less Survivable Cancers Taskforce is excellent, and they are incredibly responsive and willing to adapt and change plans so that we can seize current opportunities. They are the best agency I’ve worked with for policy and public affairs support.”
Chair, Less Survivable Cancers Taskforce
"Principle Consulting showed strong evidence of the impact they have for all their clients and a strong ethos of social responsibility, and they played a hugely important role during the pandemic for key organisations.”
Panel, Better Society Awards 2021
"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Principle. Our consultant hit the ground running and was an integral part of the team. Our commission was a major piece of work involving people living with sickle cell from across the country, senior health care professionals and cross-party parliamentarians. Principle helped us deliver our excellent report, No One’s Listening. The report was of a very high quality, receiving many plaudits nationally and internationally."
Chief Executive, Sickle Cell Society
“As a result of receiving ongoing support from Principle, we’ve had huge successes in our advocacy work. In the past year our parliamentary profile has increased a vast amount, Principle helped us to secure a meeting with the Immigration Minister as well as put our agenda in front of the Home Affairs Select Committee. The alliances that Principle helped us create has enabled us to make sure our young people’s voices and asks are considered by policymakers. We would unreservedly recommend the work of Principle. They have also provided our young changemakers with hands-on training that gave them more confidence in their ability to campaign and deliver tangible results. The flexibility of using a consultant was much appreciated during an unpredictable time such as Covid. Without Principle’s help we wouldn’t have been able to keep up the momentum for our asks and it felt like they were part of the team from day one."
Parliamentary Officer, We Belong
"It was a pleasure to work with Principle Consulting. They understood well the area we were working on and what we were seeking to understand. The work carried out was thorough, well presented and produced promptly. Lovely people to work with!"
Policy and Campaigns Manager, Mind
“Principle Consulting have bought extensive research and public affairs expertise to the Patient Information Forum's work on integrating the provision of health information into the delivery of care. From day one, the consultants have felt like members of our team, getting up to speed with the topic area quickly, and driving the project forwards. We really appreciate their committed, proactive and flexible approach.”
Joint Head of Operations, Patient Information Forum
"Principle Consulting moved Depaul from a standing start to making a tangible policy impact quickly and effectively. Our consultant supported Depaul staff to develop a primary research project that launched in Parliament with the Minister addressing the great and the good from our sector. The research was quickly translated into internal policy and practice tools to help front line staff improve their practice. I would unreservedly recommend the work of Principle and my only concern is that now they have proved the case for policy work and we have hired a full time staff member, with their help, that we won't get the chance to work with them quite as much.”
Chief Executive, Depaul UK
"An informative and thought-provoking session which opened up new avenues of exploration for the organisation. We were impressed with the research Principle had done and how tailored the session was. Highly recommended."
“Principle helped bridge the gap in our advocacy work at a time of much change within the organisation. The flexibility of using a consultant was much appreciated during an unpredictable time. Without Principle’s help we wouldn’t have been able to keep up the momentum and it felt like they were part of the team from day one.”
Head of Advocacy, Refugee Council
“Principle were responsive to our needs and extremely flexible. They brought sensible advice on communications and good support to the development of our strategic communications planning. In particular their advice and support in developing our new website was invaluable. They were always ready to assist and when it came to tight deadlines, stayed with the team in the office until the job was done.”
Chief Executive, Lumos
