THE RIGHT START: Income Generation and Funding

Who should attend:

This session is aimed at both those new to the world of funding and those who simply need a refresher.

Overview:

As the voluntary sector continues to face the hardship of funding cuts it is becoming increasingly necessary for community groups and organisations to generate and manage income from multiple sources. This introductory session will provide guidance to identify ways to maximise opportunities to generate additional income for organisations.

Topics covered:

Thrive at Work Wellbeing Trial

Thrive at Work is a new workplace wellbeing programme that supports and encourages employers to improve the health and wellbeing offer to their employees. There are limited spaces left for the pioneering Thrive at Work trial so don’t miss out, be part of over 100 SMEs in the West Midlands who have already signed up and reap the benefits!

Space in Newcastle

Do you need additional space in Newcastle-under-Lyme in which to deliver any of your activities or services? If so, Jill Norman at Support Staffordshire would love to hear from you. She is working with a group of local organisations on the future of The Guildhall in Newcastle-under-Lyme. In exploring possible usage of the building it would be very helpful to know if there are any voluntary and comunity groups who might be interested in using space there within the next 12 months or after that. This could be office space or meeting/ interview space, or room for an activity to take place.

THE RIGHT START: Involving Volunteers

Who should attend:

This session is aimed at both paid staff and volunteers who support other volunteers within an organisation.

Overview:

Volunteers are a valuable resource providing the backbone of many community organisations, and without whom, many groups would not exist. This introductory session is a great place to start learning best practice in recruiting, supporting and retaining volunteers.

Topics covered:

• Why people volunteer and the importance of motivation
