Capacity Building Support
At the heart of CVS Brent is our Capacity Building. This is a core service that provides our members with advice, information, training and guidance that will help them better deliver quality community services and initiatives. Our service aims to develop the sector’s ability to operate and respond effectively to current and future needs, challenges and opportunities.
Priority access is afforded to members to advertise services, events, volunteer and staff vacancies and other news. We can help with promoting such items including via our newsletter and our Twitter feed.
Networking events and targeted projects
CVS Brent is regularly looking for partner organisations to help deliver themed events and carry out engagement projects. Priority opportunities are offered to member organisations.
As part of our mission to develop the VCSE’s capacity to better deliver services, CVS Brent provides training throughout the year. Members can access this training free or at a subsidised rate.
Access to Virtual CVS Brent Resource
We provide user-friendly and intuitive signposts to information that will help your VCSE organisation run, grow and sustain its activities. Checklists are available to help you to carry out self-assessments to ensure you have appropriate procedures and documentation in place.
Hire of Training Suite and facilities
Our Training Suite and facilities can be hired at membership rates.
Voting at our General Meetings
