SQW 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.Project_development_appraisal_-_SQW.jpg

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.
