Who are CML Consultants?

CML Consultants are passionate about supporting Non-Profit (charity, voluntary, community, social enterprise, third sector) organisations to achieve their goals and outcomes.

CML Consultants was founded in 2015 by Catherine Liddle. Catherine brings a broad range of experience, built on a 25-year career in operational and strategic roles within the Not for Profit sector. She is particularly skilled in gaining external funding, monitoring and evaluation, partnership working and project and programme management.

Whilst most people from her Management Sciences degree course in Manchester moved into high-flying private sector careers, Catherine made a unique move by joining the Prison Service as an Assistant Governor. There she learned about social exclusion at the sharp end and about disengaged and disadvantaged sectors of society that she never knew existed before. Since then, she has always worked in the Not for Profit sector, working directly with beneficiaries and running projects and programmes to benefit them.

Her whole working life has been spent successfully bidding for funding to deliver fixed term projects, planning and delivering those projects and reporting progress and the achievement of outcomes back to the funders in order to draw down future funding.

If you want to work with someone who has passion for her work, is professional, easy to get on with, hands-on and enthusiastic, then Catherine is the person you are looking for!

Why CML Consultants?


It’s my initials; they stand for Catherine Mary Liddle… because my business is me and also because we couldn’t think of anything more fancy!

The logo is designed round a Catherine Wheel – because my name is Catherine! I love it!

Hope you do too!
