Burton Sweet has a particularly strong and longstanding commitment to serving the charity, social enterprise and the civil society / not-for-profit sectors, helping both the organisations themselves and the professional advisers who assist them.

We are proud to serve a range of clients who together represent the diversity and vibrancy of these sectors, and to support their work for particular communities and wider society. Those clients include

educational charities, churches and other places of worship, faith-based organisations, professional institutions, sports and social clubs, village halls and community centres.

Why choose Burton Sweet?

It’s really quite straightforward. Your causes matter to us.

We are committed to helping transform lives and make a positive difference, and our people are practical, professional and passionate about charities and civil society.

Our team members hold a wide range of specialist charity qualifications. Ed Marsh holds the respected ICAEW Diploma in Charity Accounting, and Cecile Gillard is a member of the Charity Law Association and an Affiliate of the ICSA – The Governance Institute.
