The team at BlueRock have supported our growing social enterprise Wellness in Real Life (WIRL) with a really diverse range of services. From accounting advice, digital marketing, business structure, product development, fundraising and grant applications. Bevan, Regant and Ella have been nothing but welcoming and continue to open up their business minds with us each month. They have immense knowledge of the start-up world and how to grow and scale a business. They are also very connected in the industry and have made multiple referrals to relevant stakeholders throughout our time together. The support on grant applications has also been second to none. Millie really goes above and beyond to consult with you to understand your business operations and which grants would be best suited to your needs. Millie is hugely knowledgeable in this space and we would highly recommend her for anyone looking to seek advice on what grants and funding is available to your organisation!

BlueRock have been an essential part of our team and growth, using services ranging from bookkeeping, R&D, accounting, legal and business advisory. As a startup, it’s difficult to choose the right partners and it took us a lot of time and cost learning from the wrong partners to really appreciate the value of the right one. We highly recommend BlueRock to any startup looking to grow and be successful. BlueRock keep our goals front of mind and truly care about the result!

We have been with BlueRock since it started, and they have always provided us with accounting services and assisted us to manage other things outside of our business. After almost 50 years in business, our affairs have become quite complex. We recently worked through our financial affairs and the re-writing of our wills, guided by Adam Morse and Ryan Williams. Getting a will right and managing the financial requirements to make it work properly is no simple task. The fact that all the information was already within BlueRock made discussing it with Adam and Ryan easier. The outcome is a very thorough, simple will and estate plan, which is, without doubt, the best result we have ever had.

Sometimes we sit on toadstools to make phone calls and have meetings around David Attenborough-inspired artefacts.

The origin of the BlueRock name is a mash-up of the founders two favourite things.
Through a mutual love of the Carlton football team and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, a firm was born!
