The aims of the programme are to enable voluntary and community organisations to:

  • Be well run (Governance, Leadership and Management, Business/operational skills)
  • Operate safely and legally (Safeguarding, Health and Safety, First Aid)
  • Become sustainable (Income generation, Marketing/Communications/Social Media)

We also aim to support organisations so they are able to thrive in the changing landscape. In particular we need to develop skills that will help the delivery of HCC’s Connected Lives model, and enable them to operate in an environment of personal budgets, direct payments and social prescribing. Organisations need to become more enterprising with improved business skills.

Sustainability and income generation is a key theme in the 2018-19 programme. Following extensive consultation with a range of VCS organisations we have developed a new programme of courses all coming under the "Building Sustainability" banner.
