Events & Training

VAAC Events & Training for charities and community groups

We offer a calendar of free networking events and free or subsidised training sessions for our members.

Our General Networking Events offer an opportunity for local charities and community groups to come together and meet other organisations working locally in Arun and/or Chichester, to share ideas and best practice, and find out about what else is happening in the area.

Our Fundraiser Network Meetings are a chance for anyone working or volunteering in fundraising for a local group to meet and discuss any issues or concerns they have, and normally involve an element of training on a specific subject.

Similarly, our Volunteer Co-ordinator Network meetings offer training on a number of issues to do with volunteer management, and again are a networking opportunity for staff/volunteers involved in the management of volunteers.

We also offer a calendar of Training events based on what our members tell us they need. These sessions are all either free or heavily subsidised for VAAC members.

VAAC networking events and most of our training is free to members and registered partners; there will be a charge for non members, non-registered partners (including statutory) and out of area organisations, unless otherwise stated. Please refer to the VAAC Events & Training Terms & Conditions for more information.

All attendees will be required to complete an evaluation form. Feedback about our training enables us to prove to funders that we are meeting the needs of organisations.

Do you need bespoke training or outside facilitation for your organisation?

We understand that there may be times where you want training or a session that is specifically tailored to your organisation. VAAC offers bespoke staff training to all organisations.
This may include topics such as:

  • Volunteer Management

We also facilitate staff/trustee awaydays.

We are happy to discuss your needs. Our charges are very reasonably priced for the voluntary sector. Please contact admin by email or call us on 01243 840305.
