Preoect_dev_and_appraisal.jpgSQW has extensive experience helping clients to develop economic and social development projects: from feasibility and market demand studies, through to formal project appraisal and options assessment, and on to business planning and set-up support.

Having worked on hundreds of interventions, we know what makes for a successful initiative: a well-defined rationale for intervention and explicit 'logic model', clearly defined objectives and activities, underpinned by a robust and realistic model of expected costs, benefits and risks.

We are frequently involved in helping to 'make the case' for projects, in terms of obtaining planning permissions and securing public and/or private funding contributions. We have experience across a range of funding routes, including Structural Funds (ERDF, ESF, LEADER, RDP), and competitions such as the Regional Growth Fund.
