Voluntary Action has delivered separate seminars on business planning and quality marks. However, at this seminar we will address how best to integrate quality mark objectives, within an organisation’s business plan.
This seminar will be tailored in accordance with the business planning development reached, by the organisations sending representatives. It will be of interest to anyone, be they trustees, staff members or volunteers, involved in improving an organisation’s overall performance.
The overall aim of the fund is to encourage stronger civil society in areas that are multi-religious and multi-ethnic by creating association, friendship and neighbourliness. It intends to bring together people of different faiths and of no faiths to transform local communities for the better. More information from http://www.cuf.org.uk/near-neighbours/grants
Personalisation means that people who use social care have a choice. They are given a ‘personal budget’ and become individual ‘customers’ for services in the community, rather than organisations deciding what services to provide.
As voluntary sector organisations, we all need to adapt to this, and be proactive. This course will help you to plan how you can respond to personalisation. In Partnership with Disability Action WF.
