PRACTICAL SUPPORT FOR VOLUNTARY AND COMMUNITY GROUPS

In 2022 Voluntary Action Camden worked with 70 groups to set up or grow the capacity of their organisation. This work has included supporting groups to:

  • Set up the group and register as the correct legal structure, be it as a Charity or Community Group, that was right for them.
  • Establish constitutions, safeguardinggovernance, financial, IT and management practices that allow for long-term stability.
  • Provide longer-term support for new and already established groups on raising funds, finding the right workspace, project development advice, building connections and influence, working better with data,  and much more!

In 2022 we also signposted a further 114 organisations to help resolve their enquiries on a wide range of issues including the recruitment and management of volunteers, DBS checks, mental health support, and other sources of useful advice and information.

VAC’s advice was really thorough. They listened to what the issues were and went through the pros and cons about all the options we had. When the development worker came to our meeting she had quite a lot of questions and she was just really knowledgeable… I’m just very impressed with VAC and I definitely recommend it to people looking to set up or grow their group.  They went above and beyond.
