FENLANDER: Advice sessions for voluntary, community and charity workers in Fenland
FREE advice sessions are being held to help people working for voluntary and community groups and charities in Fenland.
They take place on the third Thursday of each month at March Town Hall. The next one is on January 20, with others due to follow on February 17 and March 17.
Experts will be there to advise on a wide range of topics including fundraising, training, running a community group and how to keep out of trouble by keeping to the rules.
The sessions have been organised by Cambridge Council for Voluntary Service (CCVS) and Young Lives, which provides a range of support services to groups working with children and young people.
Ruth McCallum, CCVS’s operations manager, said that the first one, held two weeks ago, had been really encouraging. “Members of four community groups came along and talked over a range of issues with advisors from CCVS and Young Lives,” she said. “They also made use of our online Grantfinder service to enable them to identify potential funding sources.”
