We have arranged the following training courses taking place over the next couple of months: -

Who is trying to access your data and what are the implications of this. Also what can you do to make it more difficult for people to steal your data.

This session run by the Community Accountants at HSl Accountancy will look at what is Gift Aid and what you can claim for. It will also look at the mechanics of making claims

This session will look at the legislation, and what Trustees need to know and do. It will also look at how best to apply it in a Community Building setting where you may be hiring space but have little direct interaction with the vulnerable people attending the activities.

Talking to each other effectively is something that at times needs careful planning to avoid making a situation worse. This session will go through some helpful tips to prepare for difficult conversations, and look at the conversations themselves

Do you struggle writing successful funding bids? This session will take you through the key practical steps in describing the essential elements of your project, to tell funders what they need to know

This short session is designed for Trustees of charities to help understand their role, responsibilities and duties.

 We now offer all our training online. As we are not having to pay for venues we are passing that saving on to you, so all of these courses will cost only £5 per person.

Our Vision

The Community Matters vision is to provide a sustainable and effective "hub" of learning, support, advice and guidance, enabling local communities and organisations to grow and achieve through the provision of a high quality service.

We do this in a number of ways through our various projects which at the moment concentrate on working with children, young people and families. But not exclusively. We are able to provide training, learning opportunities and business related advice, guidance and information to individuals and organisations.
