Our Story

The heart behind Adding Value

Adding Value was born out of a need for more ethical, sustainable finance and accounting services. 

Matthew, our founder and Managing Director, initially worked as a portfolio Finance Director across a number of charities and social enterprises. He realised that there was a lack of finance skills in the sector, with many organisations reliant on undertrained internal staff members or on an accountancy practice that didn’t understand how purpose-led organisations are driven. 

We love working with organisations and companies that share our passion to make the world a better place. Our team of multi-skilled accountants are experts in not-for-profit finance. As a socially driven business, we strive to add value for our clients in more ways than one.
