Why work with me


Carla Miller

Coach & Consultant

I’m passionate about creating change and making the charity sector even better.

I started my career as a corporate fundraiser at the NSPCC and since then I have headed up fundraising teams at Action for Blind People, Samaritans, Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, Youth Music and School Home Support. In each of those roles I created significant increases in income and in total I’ve been responsible for over £20 million of income and have personally raised over £7 million for good causes.

In my 17 years working in the sector I’ve doubled the income of charities, turned struggling teams into high-flying happy teams, inspired Boards to get involved in fundraising and coached CEOs to make major donor asks. Whether your charity needs to get out of a difficult spot or wants to be exceptional, I can work with you to make sure that happens.

    — Michelle James, Director of External Affairs at Youth Music
  • “Carla is a highly skilled facilitator who provided excellent service from initial concept meeting to delivery.  She was able to quickly grasp our current position and challenged the team to think about improvement areas head on with a solution-focused approach.”

    — Jo Milne, Centrepoint
  • “Carla helped me to understand both the process of making a major donor ask and my concerns around it and gave me the confidence, support and knowledge to go and do it.  I’m delighted to say the process was successful and resulted in the promise of £500,000 for my charity.”

    — Jan Tallis, CEO at School Home Support and ACEVO Board Member
