A network of independent, academy funding and estate strategy specialists

Warneford Consulting operates exclusively across the academy school sector and combines estate and funding specialist services to maintain, improve, and optimise our clients’ built assets, resulting in efficient, sustainable, and fit-for-purpose teaching and learning facilities.

Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) Bid Services

As a small consultancy, led by Tim Warneford, our focus is always on the quality of service we provide our clients as opposed to the quantity of clients. To maintain that level of quality and care, we cap the number of Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) submissions we undertake per year. We consistently achieve a high percentage of successful bids and find our clients return to us as their partner of choice for further submissions.
