Caplor is a farm in Herefordshire in the UK. It now lends its name to Caplor Horizons, a charity that works for charities.

Caplor Horizons exists to help other organisations strengthen their leadership, renew their strategy and improve their influence.

In this way it aims to improve their effectiveness and ensure their sustainable future.

Watch our Co-Director Ian Williams talk about Caplor Horizons' journey, alongside Charles Handy speaking about his latest ideas.


What We Do

We are specialists in organisational effectiveness.

We enable the development of organisational strategy, facilitate leadership and team development, and help strengthen the abilities of organisations to influence change.
— Lorna Pearcey - Co-Director

How We Work

We strive to create very distinct learning environments, where people are stimulated, enjoy themselves and have fun. We keep things as flexible and simple as possible to respond effectively to their needs. 

Our staff and Advisors are highly experienced and skilled people.

Who We Work With

We are a charity for other charities and we also work with responsible businesses.

We operate locally, nationally and internationally with organisations, teams and individuals. We also provide mentoring and coaching.

Our Impact

Having worked with Ian for over the years on several challenging not-for-profit projects, I know CaplorHorizons is making a significant impact for the good.

Caplor Perspective

This is Caplor - a small hill in on the border lands between England and Wales. It is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, encouraging  us to look after our planet for future generations.

At Caplor, our intention is to make a real difference to people’s lives, the lives of the organisations to which they belong and, ultimately, to the wider world. Whoever we work with, we always listen first, we learn from the people involved and - only then - respond with suggestions about how to address needs.

We seek to encourage a new generation of organisations that include both businesses and charities, as long as they share the values that we seek to promote. We start with ourselves. Caplor Horizons is an independent charity that is also part of the Caplor family, which includes three businesses focusing on renewable energy, farming and property.
