WordWeaver Consultancy is focused on positive outcomes for not-for-profit clients and in turn, their clients, who are often from the most disadvantaged groups in our society.

Catherine Weaver, the consultancy’s Principal, offers a wealth of experience in writing policy, reports and articles covering such diverse areas as disability, domestic and family violence, institutional child sexual abuse, drug and alcohol support programs, and Voluntary Out of Home Care for Aboriginal children.

During her time in the NSW Public Sector, Catherine spent eight years as a grant funding manager, overseeing funding to more than 100 community based organisations, including Community Legal Centres, Neighbourhood Centres and Peak bodies such as the Tenants’ Union of NSW and the Financial Counsellors’ Association. The knowledge and experience she gained in that role has made her consultancy an obvious  ‘go to’ choice for the preparation and editing of NFP funding applications.

As the WordWeaver website attests, this Consultancy offers professional services in the areas of:

  • Program Evaluation
  • Grant funding applications and tenders
  • Grant Program design
  • Policy research and analysis of key social policy issues
  • Report writing
