Consultancy Services

Foundations provides a range of consultancy services to local authorities or providers of HIA services. This can range from help with example HIA / Handyperson documentation right through to complex appraisal and analysis work.

Some consultancy is offered free of charge to local authorities and HIAs, but for more complex tasks a fee may be charged.

Services include:

  • Service design/specifications
  • Tender / procurement support
  • Value for money analysis
  • Options appraisals
  • Systems analysis / lean systems approaches
  • DFG analysis
  • Meet the buyer events


Foundations and Foundations Advisory Services have helped many organisations from small providers seeking to enter the HIA / Handyperson sector, to large local authorities looking to restructure or redevelop their systems on a large scale.

Additionally, our consultancy services don’t end with the delivery of a report. Foundations continues to work with its customers to develop a long-term and on-going relationship, ensuring that strategic decisions are implemented successfully.

A provider's perspective:

“Back in 2013 as we commenced our journey to establish a handyperson service in Northern Ireland, I contacted you to see if we could meet and learn from your organisation and your experiences in Great Britain. Since then we have worked with Chris Pratt who took me on a tour of handyperson services in the North West, I attended your annual conference, we purchased the Case Manager system and worked with Matt to get this set up, and over the last couple of months we worked with Roy McNally who completed the evaluation on our handyperson pilot.  I would just like to say we have gained so much from working with your team and they have all without exception been professional, knowledgeable, patient and made our journey an easier one”.
