CREATING LASTING SOCIAL IMPACT

Welcome to WAUC, a student-led management consulting charity.

 
 
 

WE ARE A CHARITY

WAUC is a management consulting charity that empowers top university students to provide high-quality consulting services for not-for-profit organisations and charities, in order to help overcome challenges they may face and enhance their social impact.  

We are socially innovative

 WAUC connects the untapped competencies of passionate university students with the unmet needs of socially conscious NFPs. The quality of our consultant teams is the foundation of our ability to innovatively serve our clients and create lasting social impact. For this reason, we invest all our resources in identifying exceptional people, developing their skills and creating an environment that fosters their growth as leaders.

Our Clients 

Leading Youth Forward is delighted with the outcomes of collaborating with an extremely professional team of consultants from WAUC. WAUC have helped us to identify and implement a practical and realistic strategy for improving our fundraising sustainability, which will have an immediate and significant impact on the organisation, ultimately helping us to empower at-risk Perth youth.

 

Leading Youth Forward

We were very impressed by the comprehensive nature of the engagement undertaken by the group working with us, and, the diligence with which they applied problem solving to the questions we posed.
