Building Capacity, Fundraising & Support - Pilot Program November 2015-May 2016
BUILDING CAPACITY, FUNDRAISING & SUPPORTING VOLUNTARY, COMMUNITY & SOCIAL ENTERPRISE (VCSE) SECTOR ORGINSATIONS, GROUPS AND ‘BIG SOCIETY’ ACTIVISTS - Pilot Program (November 2015 – May 2016)
PACKAGE OF SUPPORT FOR YOUR ORGANISATION
This programme of support is based on many years of experience and practice, and comes from the bringing together of the unique set of skills of the team at Big Society Funding Community Interest Company.
The pilot programme of practical support, advice, training and capacity building is being offered at no cost to a wide range of VCSE sector organisations, groups and emerging leaders which are serving highly disadvantaged communities in Norfolk. It includes:
• Packages of Support (each worth up to five days of free dedicated consultancy support via Big Society’s team of professional consultants) to those groups located in Norfolk* • Our focus will be on engagement with highly disadvantaged organisations which currently struggle to access support or funding, and are especially being negatively impacted upon by austerity and cuts.
‘Packages of Support’ will comprise consultancy support to organisations and groups with (i) fundraising, (ii) business planning, (iii) social enterprise registration (mainly CICs), (iv) marketing, (v) beneficiary consultation & participation, (vi) evaluation and impact reporting.
To apply for a ‘Package of Support’ please provide us with some brief information (there are just five very short questions), and then we will get in touch with you.
The CICs directors will make the ultimate decision which groups secure this type of support. In Norfolk priority will be given to those groups based in Thetford.
* Phase 1 will primarily concentrate on organisations based in Norfolk. Subject to additional funding phase 2 would focus on other localities.
