IPA Consultancy (Improve → Perform → Achieve) is the trading name of Ian-Paul Ashworth. I have over 20 years’ experience of working with and for voluntary sector organisations. I specialise in proofreading; project evaluation; support with quality assurance systems (I am a former licensed PQASSO mentor); policy development; good governance standards; the facilitation of awaydays and planning sessions; and developing monitoring systems.

As a consultant I have undertaken work for (among others): the University of Manchester, the University of Sheffield, Sheffield City Council, Mencap, York CVS, the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action, Voluntary Action Sheffield and the Community Transport Association. I have served on a number of charity boards, including the role of chair of Sheffield Alcohol Support Service between 2010 and 2012. Formerly based in Sheffield, I now live in Forres.

I have undertaken proofreading work for a range of individuals and organisations, including the Universities of Sheffield and Manchester. Rates for proofing documents start at 1p per word, with a minimum fee of £10 per job.
