Small Charity Week 2021 is coming up from 14th to 19th June. Tuesday 15th June is the Big Advice Day, and while we are unable to hold a specific event this year, don’t forget that our Development Team are always available for one-to-one advice and support on a numbers of topics such as: Starting up / Policies & Procedures / Governance / Fundraising / Recruiting and Managing Volunteers and much more!
If you would like to speak to one of the team, email email@example.com for a referral form.
We want to make a bigger effort to shout about the wonderful things that you, our members, are doing in our local communities. So we are going to be using our social media pages to shine a spotlight on a different member each week. If you’d like us to feature your organisation, please fill in the attached form and email it back to us with an accompanying image. And look out for the new ‘member spotlight’ posts coming soon.

VCN: Exploring the changing landscape of volunteering
Online (via Zoom)
10am - 12noon
The way that people want to volunteer is changing; not everyone is able to commit to a whole day or even a few hours at the same time each week. Do you need to look at different ways of involving volunteers in your organisation? During this session, we will look at some of the different types of volunteering (for example microvolunteering, remote volunteering etc.) and consider how these might encourage more people to support your organisation.
Online (via zoom)
10am - 1pm
Come and chat with a member of VAAC’s Development Team about any funding issue your organisation is facing e.g if you require funding sources, fundraising strategy advice, tips on how to write a funding application etc. Email to book a slot, and please tell us what you would like to discuss so we can prepare in advance.
