Training for community building committees and staff
Training sessions for committee members, staff and volunteers of community halls and buildings
‘A very professional seminar that will benefit me in many ways’… ‘Pitched perfectly’… ‘So much good info learnt’… ‘It was really useful to network with other halls’
These are just a few things people have had to say about our recent training sessions for community building trustees, staff and volunteers.
Training programme for 2018
Our next community buildings training session is booked in for Wednesday 28 February, 1:30-4:00pm. We will be joined by Steve Wolstenholme, one of the partners at SWA Architects, to answer your questions about major building projects; issues to bear in mind, mistakes to avoid, how to work well with architects and other professionals. Steve is kindly not charging us a fee, so don’t miss this opportunity to get informed!
To fund an extension or significant refurbishment , you are likely to need a grant or two. So in this session I will also give you some handy tips for grant applications; how to state your case clearly and convincingly, mistakes to avoid, and some other fundraising ideas.
Wednesday 28 February, 1:30-4:00pm
Cost: £25 per place for member organisations (£35 for non-members) if booked by 10am on Tuesday 27 February. £35 / £50 for later bookings.
Learn the basics of how to write good grant applications and get an overview of running fundraising events. This interactive and engaging session will also give you ideas for marketing your building and help you set your hire charges at a reasonable level.
Monday 30 April, 4:00-6:30pm
Cost: £25 per place for member organisations (£35 for non-members) if booked a calendar month before the session. £35 / £50 for later bookings.

Please let us know what training your organisation needs. Also tell us if you know anyone who could offer their expertise (ideally free of charge) on an issue of relevance to community buildings. Email us or call 01962 857358. Thank you.
Tailored training at your venue
A training session with people from other organisations can give great networking and information sharing opportunities. But you might prefer us to come to you, to run a session at a time that suits you and covering the exact topics you want. Here are a few suggestions:
- Funding: grant applications, fundraising events, and more
- Should our charity incorporate – pros and cons, and an overview of the process
- Your role and responsibilities as a committee member
Email Kevin Sawers or call 01962 857358 to discuss your committee and staff team’s needs. We will work out how much time the session or meeting is likely to take and then give you a quotation.
