We want to improve the way the voluntary and community sector is run

Voluntary, community and faith organisations are an essential part of civil society. They give local areas life, independent voice and provide essential services to prevent ill health, isolation and the need for social care. But the voluntary and community sector is under pressure.

We help voluntary, community and faith organisations improve their understanding of topics like fundraising, trustees, and monitoring and evaluation. This means they can thrive and grow in the local area.

With high demand for services, but less funding available than before, it's vital that we help organisations improve their processes.

How we make a difference

Our training leads to improved knowledge, skills and attitudes within the voluntary and community sector.

We provide training for 60 organisations every year. Our training has improved understanding in governance, management and fundraising.
