Community Champions Programme

The Community Champions Programme will support the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector, by creating opportunities for networking, training and support as well as working with the sector to help build capacity and promote collaboration. As part of the grants programme, the VCSE Sector will be offered one to one professional support and mentorship, to help with building capacity, developing business and project plans and funding applications. This support will be fully funded.

Come along to our Community Champions Network & Knowledge Session on volunteer recruitment, where Kent Coast Volunteering Charity Manager, Emma Cooney will be joined by Nicola Wood, TDC’s Shared Prosperity Project Coordinator to talk all things volunteering and give us an update on the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

At this event there will be a table discussion and peer sharing opportunity and a chance for charities and community groups to come together and discuss the challenges and successes of recruiting volunteers and to network with each other. Get ideas from your colleagues in the sector about what’s worked (and not worked) for them, find out if there is scope to work more collaboratively together as a sector to find volunteers in future?

Join us on Tuesday May 14, 2024 at Newington Community Centre for a morning filled with learning and networking opportunities.

This event is perfect for those looking to support and build upon their knowledge of all things volunteering. Come and connect with professionals from various organisations and gain valuable insights to help you recruit, coordinate and manage volunteers. Click the link below to book your FREE place:
