Free sessions for Norfolk VCSEs who want to make changes but are not sure how to.

Claire and Laura are here to help your organisation make the changes it needs to flourish. These 1-to-1 ‘Ask us…’ sessions are available to Norfolk VCSEs for FREE, giving you the opportunity to speak to experts in organisational development. Claire and Laura are members of Norfolk ProHelp, providing free strategic and professional support to the VCSE sector.

Claire and Laura will be holding three sessions each month, at 10-10.30 am, 10.45-11.15 am & 11.30-12 pm, with each month exploring a specific theme:

1. “Fundraising – Giving your fundraising approach a refresh” (12th Sept) 

Are you struggling to raise funds through grant applications and not sure why? Are you a fairly new organisation that needs to consider how it will raise funds? This sessions will benefit any organisation that would like a fresh perspective on their fundraising ask.

2. “Planning and making change in your organisation” (10th October)

Is there a change you need to make, or a way in which your organisation needs to develop and adapt and you are struggling to work out where, or how, to start? This half hour session will help you reflect on what needs to happen and how to start making a plan of action.

3. “Using personality profiling in your organisation – what is insight and how to use it” (14th November)

Have you heard about Insight profiles but not sure what they are and how they could benefit you, your team, or your organisation? This session can give you an introduction and answer any queries you may have.

4. “Introducing coaching into your organisation” (12th December)

If you would like to know more about what Coaching is, how it might benefit your organisation and its people, and how you might go about introducing it into your team or organisation, then this session can give you an overview and help you think it through.

5. “Demonstrating your social value and impact to funders and stakeholders” (9th January)

Do you feel that your organisation makes a big difference, but struggle with how to measure and demonstrate this to funders and other stakeholders? This session can help you explore what social value is, and how you might explore and demonstrate it within your organisation.

We have both previously worked in Norfolk’s voluntary sector for many years and understand the need for tailored and affordable support to help not-for-profit organisations to thrive. We are offering these sessions in the hope that we can provide some support to small VCSE organisations that would otherwise struggle to access such resources.
