Testimonials

"
"
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!
