It was wonderful to meet with staff from a wide range of community groups last Friday as part of our “Together” project. The National Lottery Community Funded initiative enables VCSE sector organisations to access business advice and skills share support to deliver their services more effectively.
It was a great opportunity to network with other VCSE groups to hear more from our event partners Hinckley and Rugby Building Society who spoke about how the society has evolved with sharing core to their work and Reaching People who spoke about opportunities as part of their consortium.
Sharing is part of the culture at Hinckley and Rugby Building Society and working with Leicestershire Cares we have been able to share our knowledge and expertise with local community organisations. We are here to support our communities in whatever ways we can.Colin Fyfe, Chief Executive of Hinckley and Rugby Building Society
It was excellent to see business, the community and local government sharing learning and seeking to work together so nobody is left behind. It was wonderful to meet with staff from a wide range of community groups.Kirean Breen, Chief Executive of Leicestershire Cares
As part of The Together Project, we want to continue to explore what business skills support the VCSE sector may be looking to develop. Interested parties are requested to complete this questionnaire, it should only take 5 mins and will enable us to provide the most appropriate workshops - https://forms.gle/PQ6oirvdSrQ6jr9c6. The questionnaire is open until the 31st of March and Half Day workshops will take place in April, May, June and July based on what respondents tell us.
