Community and Voluntary Sector
PPN training, facilitation and reviews.
We have extensive experience of carrying out organisational reviews, providing facilitation and training nationwide on behalf of the PPN’s, Local Authorities and also the Department of Rural and Community Development.
Increasing standards are both demanded and expected from the community and voluntary sector. We have worked with numerous local, regional and national charities and also CLG companies to assist in meeting these increased demands on voluntary boards through tailored and bespoke training.
Community organisations regularly carry out studies to assess the viability of their capital project or initiative. Grant aid is available at a rate of up to 90% for some studies and we can provide advice and direction in preparation of terms of references and also in conducting studies to a standard that is required by funding agencies and financial institutions. We tailor the study to the fund in question that is being considered.
